March 30, 2009 – Comments (2)

Hey, too big to fail (too big, too poor, too complex, and too politically corrupted to succeed), Fannie and Freddie should do more to help out those smaller mortgage bankers, right?

If crappy home loans got us into this mess (along with unrestrained consumer lending, now going bad at a rate not seen for decades) then surely the way out is...  [more]

I'm with Gary Weiss on this one. Mary Schapiro is more interested in paying lip service to non-existant bogeyman than actually getting down to the harder job of regulating markets in ways that make sense.  [more]

Ex Countrywide Exec Sticks it To America Both Ways

March 05, 2009 – Comments (2)

The taxpayers are soaked for billions to clean it up.   [more]

March 02, 2009 – Comments (8)

Ben, there's a difference between a company suffering from a temporary "liquidity" problem, and one that's clearly insolvent. At AIG, you have not learned the difference.
