$49 billion in debt
We feel the strain of the recession and the effects it’s had on the credit markets. We are, for the most part, feeling the pain. Some of us are paying down debts and making other payments.
With the debt crisis currently being a thing, the mortgage situation is having some problems too. You can buy a home with a mortgage or with a loan. The mortgage is the first mortgage that comes up when you apply for a loan (the actual loan is called the mortgage). Mortgage lenders take a risk when they give you a mortgage and then take a risk when you pay it back.
There’s a problem with mortgage loans because people have an expectation that the interest they pay will be paid back when they move into their new home. In reality, lenders will never see that money, and lenders often don’t pay back loans. The whole issue is that lenders are risk-averse. If they don’t see the money when they make a loan, then they can’t risk going into bankruptcy if the economy turns down.
The reason banks make loans is because they need money to survive and to pay their employees. That money comes with the expectation that eventually it will pay back. If you pay your mortgage, then you have a risk-free, risk-free money right there. However, as you can see from the graph, banks that make loans are much more risk-averse than borrowers.
By that logic, most of the people in the United States are likely on the wrong side of the risk-averse curve. It’s much more likely that someone will end up in the wrong side of the curve than the right side of the curve. As a result, people should pay their debts on time and be careful of the people that they loan money to.
I know what you’re thinking. “Why does he keep repeating that?” Well, it’s because banks and other lenders don’t want to risk the wrath of the people they loan money to. So they make risky loans and keep them on the books for as long as possible. One problem is that borrowers don’t know if they’ll qualify for these loans– they probably won’t, since most of them aren’t qualified– so they end up defaulting and losing a lot of money.
A lot of people would say that the lenders dont care about the people that they lend money to.. But the truth is, that is very, very true. If you think about it, the people that they lend money to are really the ones that are on the hook for the risk. Most lenders do care about the people that they lend money to, but it is the risk that they are willing to take that scares them the most.
Of course, banks don’t lend money to individuals. In fact, most of the money that they lend is to other companies. And since a lot of those companies are going to default, the lenders also have to take on a lot of risk. This is why the Federal Reserve is putting up the money to help the banks. But the banks are still the ones on the hook for the risks.
In order to address debt, the banks would first need to build up their capital by selling assets to private investors like companies, businesses, and individuals. This is called “repo loans.” Companies and individuals who don’t already have enough cash to meet their day-to-day needs will be able to borrow funds at lower interest rates from the Fed. And since there is a lot of risk involved in lending money, most of the lenders are already taking on that risk.
It’s also possible the Fed will be getting even more aggressive with rate hikes in the near future. In fact, the Fed is rumored to be planning to use up another $90 billion or so to buy $40 billion of Treasuries in the next few months. And if the Fed gets that aggressive, it could lead to the Fed creating a secondary money market like what’s being planned for the Eurozone.
