Professor has Lead Article in University of Miami Law Review

Professor Mitchell Crusto is honored to have the lead article published in the recently edition of the University of Miami Law Review. Crusto's article, entitled "Obama's Moral Capitalism: Resuscitating the American Dream," introduces a novel constitutional approach to redressing predatory mortgage and other unfair lending practices. He argues that as a reflection of empathy as a constitutional principle the law should develop the freedom from predation as a guarantee against economic oppression by "unconscious institutional classism." Crusto coins the term "moral capitalism" as defined as "the constitutional principle of regulating capitalism to protect citizens from predation and to redress economic exploitation due to one's class or economic condition." Crusto concludes that "class is the civil-rights' issue of the twenty-first century."
