Summercat: ....who? Never heard of this company.
Smeggy Smurf: I'm heavily invested in blow
Strongbeerrules: All my assets are tied up in staying alive.
sitesmithscott: I wonder if it works like personal ratings. People with low ratings end up only qualifying for high interest loans due to the risk. Does that mean that future borrowed money by the government will have a higher interest rate that us taxpayers have to pay for? Curious.
oldernell: OK. So where else would you put your money. Recommendations, please.
Jimmysolson: oldernell: OK. So where else would you put your money. Recommendations, please.I suggest investing heavily in lead.

whidbey: Don't worry, we'll get our credit rating back.All we have to do is elect lots of Republicans. Across the board should do.
bunner: Of course they want the credit free and the money cheap. The money is just debt and when you can get it into the hands of the working class, they buy either cheap crap with it - profit - or homes they can't afford which you can then take away from them, all without using your own money. Land is valuable. Buy lots of it on margin using IOUs. Please, think of the brokers. I gotta admit, I never thought that they would try and put the housing dog back on the derivatives pony for round two, this soon.
Olympic Trolling Judge: Not one of the Big Three, but still a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization. So I guess this is a big deal.Except for, uh... *cough*
Linkster: Good investment?Pork Bellies! It's the ONLY Way!!
sitesmithscott: Does that mean that future borrowed money by the government will have a higher interest rate that us taxpayers have to pay for?
bunner: Summercat: ....who? Never heard of this company.They're the people that know the guys who are the assistants to the big wheels that say how sh*t works. They own very nice suits and a tastefully appointed office. Now start worrying!
Surpheon: sitesmithscott: Does that mean that future borrowed money by the government will have a higher interest rate that us taxpayers have to pay for?After S&P downgraded the US, the interest rate on the national debt dropped. So like most things at this scale, no, it doesn't work the same as for an individual person.
Mugato: Thanks, republicans.
Indubitably: I love how this solution continues to pad bankers' pockets.
