Carl Levin - United States Senator for Michigan: Issues - Wall Street and the Financial Crisis Carl Levin - United States Senator for Michigan: Issues - Wall Street and the Financial Crisis The financial crisis was not an act of nature; it was a man-made economic assault that cost millions of jobs, evaporated billions of dollars in retirement savings, and put our nation in the worst economic tailspin since the Great Depression. In April 2010, the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations held a series of hearings in order to examine some of the causes and consequences of the crisis. The goals of the hearings were threefold: to construct a public record of the facts to deepen public understanding of what happened and to try to hold some of the perpetrators accountable; to inform the legislative debate about the need for financial reform; and to provide a foundation for building better defenses to protect Main Street from the excesses of Wall Street. The hearings were based on an in-depth bipartisan investigation that began in November 2008.
