The mortgage market mess is worth discussing. Where do we begin?
For those that haven't attended a Policy and a Pint event, I can only describe it as an open, direct, and engaging community discussion in a relaxed setting. The Current's Steve Seel opens and moderates the conversation, and also gives attendees a chance to pose questions. Guests Richard Todd and Kara McGuire share answers and advice during the event, but we can start - and continue - the discussion online. From the event description:
Everyone knows the mortgage market is in crisis - and that it's dragging down the rest of the economy. But what caused it? How can we get out of it? And how can homeowners - and potential buyers - in Minnesota protect themselves?
Faced with those questions, what advice would you give to others on buying, selling, or financing a home? What paths can we take to correct the market? Join the online discussion and/or attend the event.
