Episode Summary

Home Loans From Hell
(12/14/2010) America is facing a foreclosure tsunami -- a quarter of all homeowners in America are delinquent on their mortgages. By the end of this year, foreclosure notices will have been sent to more than three million homes....and a second wave is predicted. The country’s largest mortgage servicers -- banks who service home loans -- have been battered in the headlines and on Capitol Hill for allegations of ‘robo-signing’ and using fraudulent documents to foreclose. But that could be the tip of the iceberg. A little-reported and little-understood aspect to the foreclosure crisis, claim consumer advocates, is that foreclosure is in fact very profitable for the banks. The banks dispute this, but we’ve been talking to homeowners across the country who say their servicers pushed them into foreclosure instead of modifying their loans. And the government-led effort to stop foreclosures could be making the problem worse. Also, economist Gary Shilling on when he expects the U.S. economy to rebound.moreless
