What Caused the Financial Crisis?
An article in the NY Times, "Pressured to Take on Risk, Fannie Hit a Tipping Point," is causing many people to wonder if Fannie and Freddie caused the financial crisis.
First, let me clarify the question. We are asking what caused the housing bubble, and, by definition, the cause cannot be explained by changes in an underlying market fundamental. I don't mean that we can't point to, say, a rumor that led to a rapid increase in the price of some good as speculators rush in, just that bubbles - by definition - are divorced from market fundamentals.
I think a more interesting question is what sets the stage for a bubble to emerge - what allows the rumor, irrational exuberance, etc., to express itself as a bubble? One thing that is needed is liquidity and credit, some way of substantially increasing demand. This is the air that inflates the bubble. Even if all the other conditions for a bubble to emerge are present, if there is no way to inflate the bubble - no way for speculators to rush in and drive up the price - then it won't inflate.
Even after 4 years we have no liquidity and credit. Even with the Fed doing all the printing and asset buying we have none. If Obama wins tomorrow it will be 4 more years before we get any. Nobody is going to turn loose of any major money as long as he is in there. But if Romney wins that money will be turned loose like a cofferdam being remove once it's job is done.

Nonsense. Democrats blackmailed bankers into issuing mortgages to minorities of face the charge of racism, collapsing the financial sector.
WALTER RUSSELL MEAD: Black Depression.
The October employment numbers deepened the gloom among African Americans and those (including the Via Meadia team) who believe that the United States as a whole cannot progress as it should unless African Americans are getting ahead too. As a report from Think Progress reminds us, in October, African American unemployment rose almost a full percentage point to 14.3 percent.
As we’ve noted in earlier posts, unemployment is only part of the story. America’s Black middle class is facing a crisis of historic proportions. African Americans were among the biggest losers in the housing bubble; well intentioned but ill advised policy changes intended to get more low income families and marginal households into home ownership kicked in just in time to lure African American families into the housing market at the peak of the bubble. The loss of wealth and savings has been nothing short of catastrophic; decades of progress in building net worth for middle class and lower middle class minority families have been wiped out since 2007.
So. How’s that hopey-changey stuff workin’ out for ya?

Ever check on how much aluminum you are eating with that sugar coated poison?
No wonder we have so many cases of alzheimers, dementia and diabetes. You people don't know how to eat. I see all the fatsos in their hoverrounds buying gallons and gallons of ice cream, cereal, crackers, white bread, cookies, processed food; did it ever occur to them that the reason they can't walk is because of what they eat?

That explains how Porkulus upgraded the infrastructure of New York and New Jersey and buried the power lines like everyone knows should be done since the first storm blew the first electrical pole over and the first tree fell on the first power line the first time a hurricane came ashore after America started using electricity.
860 billion dollars stuffed into the pockets of Democrat cronies, and not one dollar spent to upgrade the infrastructure.
Yup, those people eating cold canned food in the dark in New York and New Jersey should continue voting for Obama. It won't be long before they'll be just like everyone else in the country, eating cold canned food in the dark.

Actually, we were climbing out of it in January, 2007, when the Democrats took over all the purse strings of the US government and were handed a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit DURING A WAR, and a total debt of 5 trillion dollars.
What have the Demcorats done to that since?
Did you say they increased the deficit by ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT?
Did you say the more than tripled the debt to the 16 trillion dollars it is today?
Thanks for clearing that up for us.

<quoted text>How has Obama set race relations back?
For one thing, by using words like "revenge." By seeing how the black panthers haunted polls with weapons in their hands and not having the justice department do a damn thing about it. By bowing down like someone inferior to Saudis and Chinese. White presidents don't feel inferior. By increasing the dependence of blacks on the government and the number of unemployed blacks. The resulting whiney "gimme" attitude doesn't make working middle class American fond of them.

For starters.

I thought it was great when a black man was elected president. Now I feel resentful because of his attitudes and lack of love for this country.

Bush left a hell of a mess.

Obama has fixed most of it. America sees that, which is why he'll be reelected.

ALL economists agree that the economy is on much firmer footing and improving. Contrast that with all that Obama had to fix, the devastation left by Bush and his cronies.

Bush's lies about WMD's is what started the decline.

It's been hard, but Obama has got the economy back to growth mode again. When he came in, we were losing 800,000 jobs a month.

Heckuva job, Dubya!!
