LowcountryJoe muirgeo and Mortgage backed Securities

This post is dedicated to a gentlemanly discussion of the root causes of the current sub-prime financial melt down. It was initiated here at Cafe Hayek. And the first 3 post from there are published here to start the discussion.

Fannie Mae has been a round since 1938.
