Muckraker of the Financial System

I have published on two other prominent financial websites, Seekingalpha.com (as Gary A) and at Businessinsider.com. I muckrake the banking system and found premeditated causes for the housing bubble and subsequent meltdown. I am married with 4 grown children.

Housing Starts & Permits Near Cycle Troughs?
1 hour ago

Housing postponed a recession after the Dot Com crash. What will postpone the next recession, more easy money housing? That is certainly what Trump wants, with rules guiding lending being rolled back. But will anyone bite now that the prices are near the top? Seems like fear could enter these markets, especially where Wall Street has a large stake.

Corporate Bond Spreads Widen Signalling Greater Risks Ahead

So, subprime grew to include those alt A jumbo loans in California. It was far larger than what we normally think of subprime. These were loans made for over 500k with very easy money. These were not cra loans that Fox News railed about, but which were quite conservative by comparison. These jumbo loans turned out to be quite risky.

Excellent article, prof. This is why banks have been shunned. Our own little subprime lending market run amok. And we worry about the Chinese off bank balance lending!

Update 3: Will Meng be allowed to leave Canada for China or will our out of control POTUS use her as a bargaining chip if she is extradited to the USA? Must not be too easy to win a trade war if you need hostages to do so, right Mr Trump? realDonaldTrump

Yes, Mark, great reporting. Can you imagine how long a plan would last brokered with Meng as a hostage? Boycotts have already begun over Canadian goose clothing. Canada needs to let her out of the country, to show Trudeau doesn't hate prosperity like Trump hates prosperity.

Canada is some kind of stupid. I realize that the nation is trying to follow law, but it is following the law of a rogue nation, the USA, which has zero credibility on Iran since it left the treaty. That makes the US "law" just an exercise in power, not in law.

On my blog I discuss the past housing bubble, the crash and future housing bubbles and scams. Offering easy money loans should be against the law but is not. Selling bogus AAA rated bonds should have been prosecuted but the scheme came from the bankers at Basel 2. You can't go higher than that. http://www.examplesofglobalization.com
