Human rights organizations, as well as political and social ones, are condemning what they are calling a new form of inhumane exploitation in the United States, where they say a prison population of up to 2 million – mostly Black and Hispanic – are working for various industries for a pittance. For the tycoons who have invested in the prison industry, it has been like finding a pot of gold. They don’t have to worry about strikes or paying unemployment insurance, vacations or comp time. All of their workers are full-time, and never arrive late or are absent because of family problems; moreover, if they don’t like the pay of 25 cents an hour and refuse to work, they are locked up in isolation cells.
There are approximately 2 million inmates in state, federal and private prisons throughout the country. According to California Prison Focus, “no other society in human history has imprisoned so many of its own citizens.” The figures show that the United States has locked up more people than any other country: a half million more than China, which has a population five times greater than the U.S. Statistics reveal that the United States holds 25% of the world’s prison population, but only 5% of the world’s people. From less than 300,000 inmates in 1972, the jail population grew to 2 million by the year 2000. In 1990 it was one million. Ten years ago there were only five private prisons in the country, with a population of 2,000 inmates; now, there are 100, with 62,000 inmates. It is expected that by the coming decade, the number will hit 360,000, according to reports.

In November, FHA extended the principal reduction loan program for two more years. The FHA short refinance program was first authorized by Congress in 2008 to assist non-FHA borrowers that are underwater. It has evolved over time and is now being extended through 2016.
The short refinance is an under-utilized tool for investors who are looking to monetize their performing loans at a higher yield than a sale of the re-performing note.
Joining the broadcast to discuss short refinances is Craig Everett, principal at Cairn Advisors.
Craig has over 20 years’ experience in the mortgage industry in a variety of lending environments. Craig’s previous positions include Vice President of Distressed Originations for Lime Financial/Credit Suisse and Founding Partner of Wealthbridge Mortgage a 50 state originator and special servicer. Craig has spent the last 5 years as principal of Cairn Advisors working in the distressed origination space where he has helped hedge funds, servicers and other clients maximize the return on their assets through unique loss mitigation strategies.
Legal Eagle and the Coach Radio with David Altenbern and Bryan Kiser with their guests Randye Spina & Joe Chatham:
Randye Spina - Marketing major with an MBA who got trapped in corporate america for 20+ years. Then realized that many small businesses were struggling & that my expertise could help them. I've always been on the side of the underdog, so it just fit my personality & value system. She just launched the first of its kind, on-demand prepaid marketing membership club for those businesses that want a reliable marketing expert on their side, but don't want to/can't "hire" & train. I require no training! Get up & running fast!
Joe Chatham - a 25+ year veteran of the mortgagfe industry. In my journey I have developed an expertise in professional networking. So much so, in fact, that I have now build the premier business collaborative in New England (and developing NYC). Prior to building the USA 500 Clubs, LLC, I built the E. Coast presence for a large networking organization in CA, ProVisors. I know how to connect people. The USA 500 Clubs is a very high-end business colaborative made up of mostly attorneys, accountants, and financial professionals. It sprung out of a business relationship gone sour in 2013. I felt that having high standards for membership was key to building a relationaship driven business where commerce results from said relationships.
