Commentary: Fear again is starting to invade investor’s psyche. If we don’t go into a severe recession bordering on depression there are very enticing bargains to be had in this market. However, the US economy has been horribly mismanaged and basically left for the wolves to feast on by our lack of regulation regarding the issuance and securitization of mortgages. We are heading down a path of socialism for the rich in which they don’t suffer the full consequences of their egregious behavior. This is a very dangerous precedent.
