If your interested in this topic on this blog post, you might also want to check out
these two that I have recently written on the topic of #nfa and credit ratings
I had linked to the news headline from Associated Press so people could read the press release on the topic. I also cited Wikipedia which is a favorite of mine. There are some that would say you shouldn't cite Wiki I would disagree on such well known topics like the great recession and what lead to it happening.
The thing I would point out about that post is its a short read and gets to the point I feel. Highlights 'It was a shocking abdication of responsibility." I did bold the fact that its noted that credit agencies play a role.
I would like to point out on this post two things one I mention this years SVB collapse
"22 of 23 of the analyst as of last Wednesday had a buy rating on the now failed bank."
Secondly I pointed out something that really didnt catch headlines like I think it should have for two reasons one the government is still trying to put in place the full regulations of the law up until 2 months ago from a Dodd Frank bill that was passed when? Why has it taken so long? Who Delayed it and why?
