Полная фигня! Обвиняют всех кого-угодно, кроме реальных виновников. Можно подумать, что это банки по собственной инициативе понизили критерии для заемщиков! Все это уже обсуждалось в 2010-11 годах когда анализировали причины кризиса. Главные виновники - и респы и демократы, которые старались привлечь дополнительные голоса на выборах и давили на бизнес чтобы те давали займы кому угодно (если стоимость дома все время растет, то какая разница - кому давать деньги - дом ведь не убежит). Как жизнь показала, надо очень внимательно смотреть - кому давать.
Responsibility belongs to mortgage lenders and brokers, who irresponsibly lowered underwriting standards, pushed risky mortgages, and hid the details in the fine print.
Responsibility belongs to the Administration and to regulators, who failed to provide adequate oversight, and who failed to respond to the chorus of reports that millions of families were being taken advantage of.
Responsibility belongs to the rating agencies, who woefully underestimated the risks involved in mortgage securities.
And certainly borrowers share responsibility as well. Homebuyers who paid extra fees to avoid documenting their income should have known they were getting in over their heads. Speculators who were busy buying two, three, four houses to sell for a quick buck don't deserve our sympathy.
But finally, responsibility also belongs to Wall Street, which not only enabled but often encouraged reckless mortgage lending. Mortgage lenders didn't have balance sheets big enough to write millions of loans on their own. So Wall Street originated and packaged the loans that common sense warned might very well have ended in collapse and foreclosure. Some people might say Wall Street only helped to distribute risk. I believe Wall Street shifted risk away from people who knew what was going on onto the people who did not.
Wall Street may not have created the foreclosure crisis, but Wall Street certainly had a hand in making it worse.
