I read the headline, thats it. Why? Here was my response.
The bottom will be in when this happens:
Banks must use international accounting practices as we did for the last 80 years. Mark to market valuation of assets, no "off balance sheet" debt, etc.
Simple math Assets one column, debts other column, valuation is what the capitalist market place will pay. (Example, if I try to sell my house, what $$$ will I get).
Until the above happens, we haven't hit bottom. We are not recognizing our debts, not paying our debts, not COUNTING debts when evaluating our solvency.
