Implode-Explode Heavy Industries news feed Tracking the many faces of the global credit implosion. en-us iehi-feed-55950 Sat, 24 Jan 2015 01:04:42 GMT Foreclosure echo ``Private mortgage insurance was created to help less wealthy people buy homes by reducing the risk to mortgage lenders if the borrower defaults. Generally, home buyers who make less than a 20 percent downpayment must buy the insurance, which typically costs $30 to $70 for every $100,000 borrowed, and pays the bank for some of its losses when the borrower doesn't pay the mortgage and the house goes into foreclosure.

But while the policies have helped hundreds of thousands obtain a mortgage nationwide, they also created a class of home owners who were especially vulnerable when the economy crashed in 2008. They had large mortgages -- sometimes pressed upon them by predatory lenders -- and little equity in their houses. When real estate values collapsed, they often owed more than their houses were worth.''

iehi-feed-55921 Wed, 21 Jan 2015 18:57:50 GMT IMF downgrades global growth as fears about Europe and Russia overshadow oil windfall Ahead of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where world leaders gather this week to discuss challenges facing the global economy, the Fund revised down its global growth forecast to 3.5pc this year, from a projection of 3.8pc in October. Growth for 2016 was revised down to 3.7pc, from 4pc.

The IMF said weaker growth would be driven by a further slowdown in the eurozone, China, and a deep contraction in Russia, where the economy is expected to shrink by 3pc this year, from a projection of 0.5pc growth in October. The Fund believes the Russian economy, which has been hit by western sanctions over the crisis in Ukraine, will shrink by 1pc in 2016.
