Abstract

The costs of the subprime crisis are still being tabulated. Taxpayers of many countries are still being penalised unfairly as their governments stagger under the burden of bailing out banks poisoned by the burst of the real estate market. Regulators, including the US Fed, need to play a more active role in shaping and implementing policies that will include those meant for the real estate market. According to Wharton professor Susan Wachter, the tools needed for such effective policing are still in development. Nevertheless, the process of learning to avert the next such crisis is already underway.
