Representative Marcy Kaptur
and economist
Dean Baker discuss the housing crisis in this special presentation of
“Fighting
For Our Homes.”

Marcy Kaptur, the Democratic representative from Toledo, made waves when
she suggested on the floor of the House that Americans facing eviction
should stay in their homes and fight the foreclosure proceedings. The
bold ideas of Kaptur and Dean Baker, from the Center for Economic and Policy
Research
, have got a lot of press
and are being put into action around the country by ACORN. Brave New
Films discusses with them the run up to the housing crisis and the future
of the foreclosure fight.
