    What is being done about this problem. Do you have any idea? Do you understand when the problem began? Who thought it was a good idea at the time?

    Americans, when they were on top of the world, believed in free enterprise and the free market system. Now that this idea has become distorted through the 'education' system and preachings of the the elites Americans, like other nations before them, are sinking into a hole of self indulgent socialism. You cannot fix the problems you have, you can only blame others for causing them.

    That's the strongest indication of American helplessness and their can't do attitudes that have become so prevalent today..

    I suppose you believe a solution will always be available next Thursday.

    You haven't noticed government intruding in free market areas? Have you been asleep for the past few decades?

    Later that year, President George W. Bush signed the American Dream Downpayment Act, a new
    program that provided grants to help home buyers with downpayment and closing costs. The act
    authorised $200 million dollars per year for 2004‐2007.

    The so-called free market caused the problem, let Wall Street and banks do whatever they want to do.

    Rise and shine! There no such animal as a free market. Every game in this world has rules and regulations.

    As old as I am I have never seen a free market. As I have aged it "feels" like markets have been deregulated and more competition introduced. I don't keep score ... just thinking of markets when I was younger. The US was 9th in the world on the Economic freedom index ... which isn't shabby. Where do you feel there is more intrusion in the market?

    Con, did you read any of this stuff?


    Later that year, President George W. Bush signed the American Dream Downpayment Act, a new
    program that provided grants to help home buyers with downpayment and closing costs. The act
    authorised $200 million dollars per year for 2004‐2007.

    In 2004, the 2000 rules were dropped and high‐risk loans were again counted toward affordable
    housing goals.


    This was in the assumption that Fannie Mae's enforcement of their underwriting standards for
    standard conforming mortgages would also provide safe and stable means of lending to buyers who
    lacked a prime credit rating. The market continued to perceive that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
    had an implicit government guarantee which gave them the ability to issue debt at lower rates than
    would otherwise have been possible.
    Thanks, I'm going to bookmark it for future reference.

    As a matter of fact there were many rtegulations in place but the government began meddlinng in the mortgage market, amom=ng other things, and things began to fall apart.

    We all need laws and regulations, but Medicare, Medicaid, as two examples, are government programs that Americans got along without for almost two centuries. Then they became essential and Americans became hooked. Now if you get Obamacare the health system is screwed as well. You really believe y0u don;t have Socialism?

    Are you hoping it does for the United States what it did for Europe, the Soviet Union, and so on?

    In which areas do you feel there are fewer regulations than in the past?

    The banking industry? Health? Farming? Fishing? Education? Advertising? The Media?
