Докато някак се радвам, че доларът скоро ще стане лев и празнувам, че нямам кредити или кола – с този бензин; от известно време насам все питам кво става с тази криза.
Не съм сам.
Прекрасен текст от NYTimes, който обяснява как никой не може да си обясни изцяло кризата:
The part about the housing crash seems simple enough. With banks whispering sweet encouragement, people bought homes they couldn’t afford, and now they are falling behind on their mortgages.
But the overwhelming majority of homeowners are doing just fine. So how is it that a mess concentrated in one part of the mortgage business – subprime loans – has frozen the credit markets, sent stock markets gyrating, caused the collapse of Bear Stearns, left the economy on the brink of the worst recession in a generation and forced the Federal Reserve to take its boldest action since the Depression?
I’m here to urge you not to feel sheepish. This may not be entirely comforting, but your confusion is shared by many people who are in the middle of the crisis.
Точно от това имах нужда днес.
