Calibrating the Credit Crunch
November 24, 2009 By Richard Berner New York Credit headwinds to growth abating. The credit crunch is not completely over; far from it. This most severe financial crisis since the Great Depression likely will leave lasting scars on risk appetite and a legacy of impaired balance sheets that will take time to repair. Indeed, with housing activity turning lackluster and home prices starting to decline again, consumer sentiment declining, and commercial real estate fraught, it might appear that those scars are resurfacing in weaker activity. But in our view, courtesy in part of aggressive monetary, credit and quantitative ... market research, surveys and trends

In fact, about 60 percent of domestic banks say they tightened lending standards on credit cards during the previous three months, according to the October senior loan officer survey from the Federal Reserve.

How will the subprime housing crisis affect you?
The subprime mortgage loan is called “subprime” because it involves lending to “subprime” (relatively risky) borrowers that are less capable of weathering upward changes in interest rates.

The crisis associated with loans to such borrowers arose when interest rates on adjustable rate mortgages jumped, and borrowers became unable to make their mortgage payments because of increased interest rates. In a robust housing market homeowners unable to make their mortgage ...

How much does the average airline co-pilot/first officer earn in a ...
most of the graduates.  I had two brand new pilots renting rooms from me.  They were making less than 20/hr - can't remember the amount, but I think it was about 17.00.  All pilots start as first officers, and they do not get to become a captain until they have a certain number of rated hours on the plane they are flying, and until a position opens up.  You don't get to the big planes until you've been on the little planes for a while, and just because you are a captain of a small plane does not mean you'll get to be a captain of a bigger plane until you've gone through the same process.
