It will be 2011 before banks will get through their turmoil.

    I know I'm not thinking about buying on credit or buying a mroe expensive house with an increased mortgage. Who is?

  • So far, so good when it comes to Q2 earnings reports, but Paul La Monica is struck by the "sobering" disparity between what CEOs are saying and what they're doing.
