In a conference call I did this week for a fledgling DC company, Capitol Forum, I explained to listeners why I was “more optimistic than I’ve been in months” about the possibilities that the future would include some form of Fannie and Freddie, working within the nation’s mortgage finance system as privately owned companies.
I cited Fannie and Freddie’s earnings and the fact that both soon (Freddie already has) will cross the point where they would have paid back more to the Treasury than they received; the occasional positive comments being made about the two systemically; Tim Howard’s forthcoming book (available now to those who ordered it on Amazon
), and the book’s likely impact on policy makers, opinion leaders, and the media. (Link to the call is below.)
