Illegal use of Equity - Average and Normal

09-10-2008 02:47

People have made bad and improper investments with credit and equity.

My family and friends (who I would say are "average" and "normal" Americans) have used home equity to buy other homes, invest in the stock market, to buy "stuff", and to pay expenses. This sometimes illegal and improper use of residential property equity is the problem! This equity does not exist yet, and no one knows when - or if it will. --- No one knows how much it may be. ----- And it is all ready "at work" - multiply times over. --?--- I have seen many people live off of credit, and use their money to invest. This "hyper-capitalism" of equity on equity - on credit and debt appreciation, is a flawed and failing economic model; and it is failing - just as it should.
