    Irresponsible lending practices. Lending up to 110% of the purchase price of the assets, lending without down payment, allowing borrowers to have more than a 1/3 of their income going to their mortgage. Crazy loans like short term ARM, interest only loans.
    The problem with no down-payment mortgage is that the borrower has no equity into the house. If he cannot pay his mortgage he losses nothing or hardly nothing. It’s like renting. Lending practices need to be clean up and lending requirement need to be tighter.

    It is true we could debate this forever. It will take years for the economy to recover but I think it is the government to blame. Trying to stimulate the economy by making people want to borrow and spend… when that is what got us in the mess in the first place… isn’t going to help. I think cutting taxes and getting people back into employment and new businesses is the best.

    It is unfortunate that the little guy(middle class) is suffering while the greedy prosper. Hopefully this crisis will weed some greedy ones out.
