    Europe has serious problems too. Their banks generally have more debt than American banks.

    Does that surprise anyone? We are the world's only Superpower and that does not just mean military. Our consuming binge fuels the entire planet. We ARE the crux of the "global market". The world sells us stuff, they don;t buy our stuff! When we stop buying they all go into the tank.

    Banking is an INTERNATIONAL ACTIVITY.

    National banks are ALL playing the same game, folks.

    Notice that England and OZ are ALSO starting to have falling real estate prices?

    tick tock.
