Why the Bronx burned
40 years later
The government lit the match
Forty years ago, the South Bronx looked as bad as any Middle East war zone.
New fires every day, sometimes every HOUR.
Blocks and blocks of vacant garbage strewn lots. A murder rate equivalent to a war zone.
Here’s the role the government played in destroying the community: They incentivized financial crime.
Sound familiar? The same thing is being done to the entire US economy and now Wall Street is the arsonist.
