Foreclosure Crisis- The Result of Unserviceable Debt

- Posing the problem of solving the foreclosure crisis first begs the question – “is there really a foreclosure crisis?” The country is certainly in crisis, but the crisis is not being caused by mortgage foreclosure.

Rather than being a crisis, the potential onslaught of home foreclosures (which has been slowed somewhat by the Obama administration’s “Making Home Affordable” program) is actually market forces hard at work cleaning out the mess in the real estate market caused by too much cheap money loaned to people who were not sound credit risks to buy homes they could not afford....   [tags: real estate]
