Two Things

We yesterday provided a complete assessment of Sandra Thompson’s sojourn on HFSC’s griddle, noting the lack of any insights into essential issues such as conservatorship’s end or the full scope of CRT’s new beginning.  More interesting to us are new battlelines on new products, including signs of renewed skirmishing over GSE self-insurance in lieu of MI.  Unlike FHFA under Calabria, Fannie and Freddie appear to have a friend in one critical high places for new ventures, especially those said to be good for equitable finance.
