Back to the Blog Better Living Through Defaulting: Just Walk Away From Your Home


So let’s say you’re stuck in a house that the bank says is worth half a million, but the market says it’s worth only a quarter of that. What if it turned out you could walk away from it and rent not just another house, but a bigger house, for less money? What if four million of your friends figured this was a good idea, too? We’ll discuss this and more on today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, a daily podcast from The New Ledger on politics, policy and the marketplace with Francis Cianfrocca, brought to you by BigGovernment.com.
