O problema está contido. A sério...

First, let’s consider the size of the foreclosure problem. I chatted with Sean Dobson, CEO of Amherst Securities, and he quantifies the foreclosure crisis as 12 million at-risk households. Seven million have already stopped paying their mortgage, another five million are so deep under water, they likely will. Meanwhile, only 1.5 million homes have been liquidated, that is, they’ve been repossessed from a delinquent borrower and sold off to a buyer capable of making monthly payments. In other words, we’re in the bottom half of the first inning of this crisis.
