You do something...no you do something.....

The bank CEOs on one side and the Regulators on the other....Carney, Flaherty and Dickson of OFSI.

The bank CEOs like Clark of TD are pretty much begging the regulators to DO something. Tighten the rules, raise rates, rein in the CMHC...do something to stop us from lending!

Meanwhile Carney et Co are asking the lenders to show restraint.

The message from the CEO's is simple. We cannot hold back. We have to push the envelop. please staple the envelop so we don't push it as far. We can't help it. the music is playing, we have to dance!

Neither are doing anything.

Neither did anything to stop this bubble from reaching huge proportions and it could have been prevented.

We had the example of the US to see exactly What-Not-to-do, and yet we did it. Same crap.

Insured high leverage mortgages, cash back mortgages, CMHC expanded even as Freddie and Fannie were going bankrupt in the US, CHMC insurance for rental and investment properties, document-lite mortgages- you name it , we did it.

Now the chips will fall where they may.


  1. The banks don't want to give up on the tax-payer insured profits and the Feds don't want to be blamed for a housing bust so they are caught in the prisoner's dilemma.


  2. Fantastic website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I'd really like to be a part of community where I can get feed-back from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Kudos!

  6. Currently it looks like Movable Type is the top blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  8. Hello there, I'm new to blogging and websites in general and was curious about how you got the "www" included in your web address name? I see your domain name, "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=4251672323919283767&postID=1213586045594248886" has the www and my web address looks like, "http://mydomain.com". Do you know the best way I can change this? I'm using Wordpress.

    Many thanks
