Didn't govenrment force banks to give subprime home loans?
« on: September 18, 2008, 07:51:16 PM »
I remember Trauma had a nice thread a while back explaining how the government forced banks to issue subprime loans to home buyers that they really never wanted to quality in the first place.

Now those loans have defaulted causing so many problems for the economy....

Can someone explain, I tried to search for it but didn't see it.

"I will make records as big or bigger than Death Row".   -Dre, Source 1996

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

Before all of the foreclosures, house prices were at an all time high. Banks figured they could give out bullshit loans to people who couldn't pay it back, then take the house and try to resell it for a profit. So basically, a month after the bank took back the house, the land was worth more, not to mention the thousands of dollars they got from the bullshit loan. That is what I believe anyways.
