That's right, Non Prime loans might be a new name, but it is the same old problem
Both private and government backed lenders have been at it for a while. We have explored all the various ways bad lending has been creeping back into the financial world. Sadly, it has been this way for several years now. But now, we have reached a more critical mass where the practice appears to be getting a more common usage. This is not good. We are simply priming the lending pump for another downturn and the market is ripe for it. Sub prime loans or non prime loans end with the same thing, a economic meltdown that is likely to dwarf what we saw in 2007.
