1.) I wonder how long it will take the presidential candidates to back a bailout and financial solutions for sub prime home owners. Just imagine the difference in votes a candidate would get, who would press for some kind of reform of bancruptcy procedures... 2.) Let's just imagine, that at the end of the tunnel, there would be some kind of solution, where sub prime home owners are granted new credit conditions, just like the dutch did by the end of the tulip mania. This case might be one of the biggest examples, where the poor took from the rich.
