Making Sense of the Subprime Crisis
DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 74 pages
This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Explores the question of whether market participants could have or should have anticipated the large increase in foreclosures that occurred in 2007 and 2008. Most of these foreclosures stemmed from loans originated in 2005 and 2006, leading many to suspect that lenders originated a large volume of extremely risky loans during this period. While loans originated in this period did carry extra risk factors, underwriting standards alone cannot explain the dramatic rise in foreclosures. Market participants should have understood that a significant fall in prices would cause a large increase in foreclosures. Analysts understood that a fall in prices would have disastrous consequences for the market but assigned a low probability to such an outcome. Charts and tables.
