See: Too Little Too Late - The Money Party at Work  Feb. 18,  2009


(Image by Unknown Owner)   Details   DMCA

There are 4.9 million Alt-A and subprime loans.  Alt-A's are loans to those with higher credit ratings that have special introductory features.  Subprimes are loans to people with marginal credit.

15% of Alt-A loans were at risk in at the start of the year.  30% of subprimes were at risk.

A majority of Alt-A loans will "reset," increase interest, in the next 2 plus years.  25% of subprimes will do the same at a much higher rate.  That spells disaster since the "resets" are a major trigger for bankruptcy.
