Greedy, money hungry, materialistic people who ignorantly borrowed, lent, and spent money they never had.

Rating agencies. S&P, Fitch , Moody's. Greed is greed, mistakes is mistakes. These guys failed professionally, failed miserably and I am not sure at all that they failed without benefiting from that. And they could have prevented the whole thing single-handedly.

China and the Economy. Mainly the economic crisis emerged when suddenly 1 billion people (china) came on the market, that expansion has led to some issues, which weren't solved well enough by all governments (whole world).

But anyway it'll get fixed, and then we'll be happy again

Re: Who do you blame for this economic crisis?

you can't say it's just one person. This has to do with years of running a government improperly(including GREED, AND ALL OTHER HUMAN DESIRES)
