I'm trying to get aa grip on the whole Bailout. Yes, even after it has been passed... Yes, even after it has been denounced by it's creators...
Yes, even as they ask for more.
To try and get an idea on what could (or might not be happening) I'd like to present you with this and see if anyone here can hone in exactly how it
works or if this is indeed the conspiracy I think is laid in the Bailout.
The bank gives William a loan for a house he is buying. The house's inflated rate is $230,000. William is a bit streched for credit, but they give
it to him anyways...
Some time later, the realestate bubble pops and William's house is only worth $80,000. Forced to forclose, he turns it over to the bank who calls it
toxic and get's the govenment to pay the total differance that William owes including intrest.
THEN, because it's contractual, the bank sells the house at an obvious loss of lets say $150,000. Now you and I both know that William is going to
have to pay the differance for what he owed on the house and what they got for the house.
But wait a minute... Didn't the bank just double dip? Did they not just get (in this scinario) money from the governement to cover it and the still
hit William up for the money too?
I present to ATSers world wide the Bailout Double Dip Theory
I am not sure how accurate this is... But does anyone know if this is what the banks can/will do? Because let's face it... If they can, it the
Bailout only helps the bank double profits... It still screws the consumer.
I am open to critizism here, but I really don't see how this Bailout works (in practice or theory) so I'm trying to get a real world scinario.
Grazi on your input!
