The comfortable fantasies that have sustained the American Dream for several decades, are fading fast. 2007 was the year when we took a peek behind the curtain, and saw what financial machinations are sustaining the world's largest economy. American consumer spending represents 25-30% of global GNP, but the money that Americans are spending is not all their own, nor is much of the energy we are using. Keeping the oil and the money flowing relies on spin, financial manipulation, and statistical adjustments which are now being exposed as fiction. If the ... market research, surveys and trends

When I first came to Housing Doom in mid-’06, my main concern was accounting rule SFAS 140, which allowed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to hide much of their accounting risk in off-balance-sheet "QSPEs."  Recent events [2] have made a mockery of this, because the two big GSEs have been effectively (if ... market research, surveys and trends

Housing Crisis Likely to Drag Down Credit Scores
RISMEDIA, June 30, 2010—(MCT)—For countless Americans struggling to make their mortgage payments, the problems have just begun. Although a loan modification or foreclosure might allow them to put their housing problems behind them, millions will be dogged for years by the aftermath—a credit score so tarnished by the housing debacle that lenders will want to avoid them. And if they are able to obtain loans, high interest rates are likely to strain their budgets. This is one remnant of the housing crisis that is sometimes ignored by economists, but the effects may well be a drag on the nation’s consumption—and the economy as ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Why has the American mortgage problem had such widespread ...
I get that falling housing values can lead to defaults, and I get that an economic slowdown can lead to defaults, and I get that rising interest rates can lead to defaults on ARMs, and I get that there were a lot of lousy mortgages made recently that never had a chance.
