Cub scout popcorn sales start Saturday, Oct 4 and continue until late October. This is our one main fundraising event each year. Proceeds  fund our den activities, and may even help send a scout to camp.
Buy some great popcorn for yourself, or give it away as Halloween treats, or give as thank you for people you appreciate.

The Boy Scouts will not be selling popcorn this years, so you will be looking for scouts 11 and under. Thank you for your support of
scouting.

Reflections on the Credit Crisis

A tremendous amount of capital has disappeared because of a fact that most people knew, which turned out to be false.

The false fact:You can’t lose money in real estate.

People stretched to buy houses that they perhaps could not afford, thinking they could refinance or sell at an ever-higher valuation. Lenders made mortgages on questionable terms, in part because the loans were backed by houses that could be repossessed and sold if necessary for ever-higher prices. Investors bought mortgage-backed bonds for the same reason.

At the root of it all, every step of the way was

the false fact:You can’t lose money in real estate.

The over-investment in housing was supported by government policies. Tax-free gains upon selling a residence and “affordable housing” programs for less-qualified buyers encouraged people to over-extend. The packaging and sale of mortgages into widely-distributed securities created additional funding for the housing bubble.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Housing is cyclical and always has been. There have been four boom-and-bust housing cycles over the last half century. One bust caused the S&L problem in the late 1980’s. That crisis spilled over into the bond market and certain insurance companies, and featured a thousand insolvencies of savings and loans. The government was forced to create a new entity, the Resolution Trust Corp, to deal with $480 billion of assets from failed institutions. Today’s mess may actually be smaller in proportion to the size of our economy.

---------------------------------------------------------------

The current crisis may not be larger than some problems we’ve had in the past, but it is widespread. As with the extraordinarily high interest rates of 1980-1982 that brought the economy to its knees, every corner of the financial world has been affected. It will take time and money to get through this.

--------------------------------------------------------------

History does show how past cycles ended. We dealt with our problems (perhaps in a less-than-perfect way). The economy recovered sooner or later, then grew to reach new heights in production, jobs, and wealth. Likewise, the stock market eventually began to rise in fits and starts and ended at new record levels. The strength of the American System has always overcome its imperfections and the excesses that lead to problems.

---------------------------------------------------------------

The timing of recovery is uncertain --which makes it more interesting than we would prefer.

The lesson for today is to think about our strategies in the context of the long view, without over-reacting to this latest chapter in a very long book.
