matt1966 | Dec 19, 2012 10:32 AM ET Loan demand drying up? Oh, that`s ez to fix. Just start lowering the standards- It`s only a matter of time before the drumbeat to do that occurs. Or maybe there won`t be a drumbeat.. they`ll just quietly do it so as not to appear to have learned nothing from the last fiasco. Of course, this time will be different. We`ve learned so much. I think now we can walk that fine line between maximizing demand and minimizing risk. Afterall, housing is huge sector that typically leads us out of recessions. We can and must do everything we can to start that engine! End sarcasm.
