Subprime 2.0: The Affordable Housing Nightmare Continues

At the Bipartisan Policy Center’s recent conference entitled “Housing Finance Reform: Is Inertia Gaining Momentum?” representatives of the Government Mortgage Complex called for a repeat of the failed government “affordable housing” experiment begun in the early 1990s.

Loose lending was the tool used to drive the homeownership rate and home prices to unsustainable levels.
