How do you expect the future of subprime crisis in 2008 and what is the reason of your expectation? What about the housing market of the U.S. in 2008? More possibility of dropping down? If yes, why? If subprime crisis continues and the recession of American economy realizes, how does it influence the global economy? What would be the worst scenario? Last December, the Bush’s administration announced a deal to freeze the mortage rate. Do you believe this would be effective? Could you explain the process of the subprime crisis? Many people around the world are curious of how such a financial crisis could have happened in the U.S. which has the highest technology in financial industry. How could this happen? The previous cases of financial crisis in many other countries did not spread out to the world, but this subprime crisis in the U.S. already had effected many other countries’ economy. Why? What is the lesson that we can learn from the current subprime crisis? Slide21: Friday's agreement for Bank of America Corp. to buy Countrywide Financial Corp. for $4 billion shows how size and financial solidity are trumping everything else in mortgage lending. With the heft to withstand rising defaults and falling home prices, these big companies are helping prevent a total shutdown of mortgage lending. "Bank of America stepping in right now is a very good thing for the market" because it signals confidence in an eventual revival of the housing and mortgage markets from what appears to be the worst slump since the Great Depression, said Susan M. Wachter, a finance and real-estate professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. Now, defaults are forcing lenders to tighten their standards, and mortgage volume has been plunging, along with home sales. The Mortgage Bankers Association has projected home mortgage originations of about $1.86 trillion this year, down from a peak of $3.95 trillion in 2003. Mortgage Markets Get a Hand By JAMES R.
