Lowell: The Natural History of a Rumor

by Calculated Risk on 8/10/2010 08:55:00 PM

Linda Lowell at HousingWire wrote a great piece chronicling the history of that ridiculous rumor last week of a massive bailout of underwater homeowners: "Slam Dunk Stimulus" – The Natural History of a Rumor

I'd like to thank Linda for mentioning my reaction ("nonsense"). I usually ignore these rumors, but this one was getting significant coverage and was obviously nonsense.

Linda's piece is excellent.
