Can't get enough of the Treasury/GSE news? Behind the move, speculates ZH, is Tim Geithner's fury at FHFA head DeMarco's snubbing of administration plans to impose principal reductions on mortgages ahead of the election. More? From the Treasury PR: "(This ends) the circular practice of the Treasury advancing funds to the GSEs simply to pay back dividends to Treasury." Did Treasury just admit it was running a Ponzi operation?

    Now substitute "GSE" with "FED" and you'll uncover the biggest Ponzi Schemes of all.

    No one will ever invest in a GSE again after this.

     

    The paper is still good though...for now.
