re: More FHA insanity - Reauxhan
This is so absurd, enough to make anyone's blood boil. Is there any instance in recorded history of a country getting out of a credit bubble by incentivizing its citizens to take on MORE debt? For the life of me I can't comprehend why folks like Ken Rogoff, who studied these episodes back to 1...

re: Rented a book on banking writen in 1983 - Reauxhan
Just about everything I've read on the current crisis I've read on blogs I respect, or from economists I respect, so I haven't had time to read any of the books chronicling it to this point. That said, I hear good things about Gillian Tett's book "Fool's Gold." Another is "A Demon of Our Own Design"...

What's on your RSS feed, if you don't mind my asking?

[quote]Corporate bond spreads have continued to tighten (even in the face of a massive supply boom, a record $1 trillion of new U.S. issuance has hit the market this year) and the “undervaluation gap” in this once-very-cheap sector has now closed given that it is de facto discounting 2.5% U.S. econo...

re: A question I'm not qualified to answer - Reauxhan
Oh, and to give an actual answer to your original question - my point with all those stock stats is that it might be unwise to believe the rally has been sustainable, and seems a decent likelihood of correcting back to the economic fundamentals at some point. Markets often diverge from underlying ec...
