    Roach makes sense – which means his ideas have a snowball’s chance of being adopted in today’s Beltway atmosphere. And the panelist’s (Keith?) idea of strengthening the dollar is a non-starter because it would hurt multinational corp’s profit margins.

  2. [...] – A debt jubilee anyone? [...]

    Oh come on…………….. the pain must be shared.
    The institutions that floated the loser loans should be torn limb from limb and the parts distributed to the highest bidder. Every single person/entity that invested in these loser lenders should have their equity or bonds completely wiped out. (Capitalism needs to be reasserted. )
    The bankruptcy process is loaded with debt forgiveness mechanisms for individual borrowers.
    People and companies need to take responsibly for their actions! When is the age of enlightenment and responsibility going to start???

    More theft of purchasing power from renters and savers. Moe desperate attempts to add leverage to a deleveraging system. Fail.
