    Why did you loan that person $20 and then require them to pay you $30 in return, isn't that stealing????? Shouldn't you have just given them $20 and then apologized for not giving them more, I mean isn't that what you're supposed to do with "white-privilege" even though it's a bank??? Why didn't you just give EVERYONE who ask $20, can't you just print more money???? I mean just because you have a limited amount of something doesn't mean you can't just give an unlimited number of that something away, am I right? You could at least give everyone a dollar, even if they didn't want it, you could give everyone a dollar, couldn't you?!?!?! And SO, all this makes me wonder... why you didn't think of some kind of an excuse to get out of this hearing yesterday...., I mean isn't causing yourself an injury to get out of this hearing less painful, than say...., trying to figure out how to answer the self-righteous and completely IRRELEVANT questions coming from the democrats on this panel????????????????????????????????????????

      This was some of the dumbest and most pointless line of questioning I've ever heard. Nothing about this interaction was sharp or intelligent and I can't tell of you're a bot or being serious. She asked a LOAN COMPANY why they were involved in the CAGING OF CHILDREN. Do you see the issue with that? Why don't we hold Auto Loan companies responsible for peoples' hit and run accidents? Why don't we hold employers responsible for how their employees spend their paychecks? If somebody works at McDonalds and buys a gun to shoot somebody with, man, McDonalds gave him that money, better hold them responsible.

    To tell you the truth, I thought AOC would rip that Wells Fargo crony, Mr. Sloan, a new one. Wells Fargo is such a corrupt enterprise I REFUSE TO DO BUSINESS WITH THEM EVER AGAIN! And so should most Americans. The range of investments that Ocasio-Cortez brought up is but the tip of the iceberg. This an evil, soulless company that has been caught many times breaking business laws and suffered pretty large settlements. I for one would love to see this company go under for the crap they pulled on millons of people. Shame on them!

  • Aaron Hoffman

    I feel like Cortez’s main thought moving forward is to link all aspects of projects together logistically hard but could have some good. I don’t agree with this approach because it inflates victim culture. This said I do see where they are coming from. Basically if the company wanted to build the pipeline they should have occurred all funds possible to make it fault proof, this hands off a majority of the task of making it safe to the investors trying to encourage “smart” investments. The problem with this is if there is no profit margin for the banks there is no incentive to fund any projects. This is what bothers me about these kinds of debates. Sry for the long comment if you read what are your thoughts?

  • loganj7238
    loganj7238 3 days ago +5

    I think this is a pointless line of questioning. Wells Fargo's incentive is to provide loans they can make a return on, not protect the environment directly. They evaluate environmental risks but only to determine the viability of an investment.
    The organization that really had the power to prevent environmental harm is the agency that issued the building permit. They are supposed to establish standards to avoid these events. If the costs to meet these standards are too high Wells Fargo won't invest because it's not viable for them thereby preventing the harm. If the investment is still viable after meeting the standards then it gets funded.
    Ms. Ocasio-Cortez wants to blame the company for following their incentive when the lack of judiciousness in the government standards is what enabled the disaster. Business follow their incentives. Government (ideally) shapes the incentives to prevent externalities. She should be grilling the permit issuers and modifying the environmental standards that apparently were not strict enough.

    The point she is trying to get across is, if you do risk assessment, and constantly see people who you do business with, and those services you provide to them is vital to the point that their action would not be possible without it, and those actions end up hurting others, then perhaps, either you are doing business with those entities under the guise of knowing their prospective damage to others, or you are just a greedy bastards who only care about the bottom line.

    So moral of the story is, pass better regulation that would hold financial institutions responsible for the type of people/business they invest in. Oops, I believe they already do that, (SEC, FinCEN, BSA, OCC, FDIC, FRS, NCUA etc.) 🤯 Please Congress, spend more time regulating smaller business or intities who you wish to really hold accountable to the same standards! If I missed the point then I will admit that fact. I didn't like the Congress women's tone in this hearing.

    It's simple, in politics there are no fist fights. You have to use language and slick questioning to get people to make mistakes, misspeak and make statements that could potentially self incriminate, defame, or tarnish themselves or who they represent. Plain speaking allows for easy lies to fly under the radar and doesn't allow viewers to see in all context how the person on trial might respond under pressure. This is why AOC and many other politicians have to resort to these strategic conversational tactics to pin the defense. You people think you're so smart calling career politicians stupid when you just show your inferiority in understanding what just played out.
