    Is there a chance that the equity positions can be further eroded by holding other derivative securities, meaning similar to the mortgage-backed derivative securities but backed by something like credit card debt, for example. So can other predictable disruptions like an increase in loan defaults for C.C., Home Equity, and Auto (all likely) cause a similar effect as that being caused by the mortgage-backed securities that these institutions hold in mass quantities?

We will go into historic record debt. The future generation will have to pay at some point, but at the same time we can’t just watch unemployment increase and middle-class Americans lose jobs in record numbers. There has to be another solution, another alternative…
