    We do not need a replay of the Great Depression of the 1930s, when the failure of thousands of banks meant a drastic reduction of credit-- and therefore a drastic reduction of the demand needed to keep production going and millions of people employed.

    this will happen without government help. no i don't like it. but i need my job and this paper is not worthless. it is mortgages to real homes you can buy and live in. not a T-bill can't live in a T-bill. a $200,000 house gets reduced to $150,000 the actual mortgage note costs is close to $90,000 so even at $150,000 this is a good long term investment. the problem is that the $90,000 is tied up. as in not available for investment or to use for loans (credit). there is a great chance that the US government will make lots of moolah long term. of course the democrats will spend it as soon as it hits the books.
