Wall Street firms feel subprime pain


More hedge funds are expected to blow up in the coming months too. They’ve already lost billions. Well, that’s what they get for being greedheads. They should have remembered their own Wall Street adage, “bulls make money, bears make money, but pigs get slaughtered.”

Odd, wasn’t it just a few months ago those firms (and the Fed) were saying everything was just peachy with subprime, with no problems expected?

So, do they just lie for the sake of lying or are they genuinely and seriously deluded? As for the hundreds of thousands (maybe millions by now) of those who have lost or are losing homes due to fraudulent or usurious mortgages, Wall Street is, of course, silent.
