    Just watched interview with Warren Buffet, he predicts that US economics will hit the bottom by second half of 2009. It was quite interesting to watch him he sounds very enthusiastic about the future of US economics.

    Appreciate the link FT. There’s still a couple of holdout lenders left with variable mortgages at prime rate…thank goodness.

    The market’s inflated rates are (hopefully) a short-term scenario. Credit spreads will inevitably come back down to earth, in which case we’ll see discounts to prime once again. It may take a while, or it may happen within a month or so. No one knows just yet…

    Cheers,
    Rob
