Twenty-Five Year Credit Bubble

So what sort of mess have we gotten ourselves into this time?
Well, over the past two years we have witnessed the bursting of a twenty-five year credit bubble of monumental proportions.
The epicentre of the bubble, of course, has been in the U.S. sub-prime mortgage market.
Contrary to almost all forecasts, it spread quickly to all sectors of the banking and credit markets and now to the real world economy – main street.
This economic contraction is the first synchronized global downturn since the 1930s.
