    Fascinating insights, Roger.

    I would add one more important piece to the puzzle. In between the layer of good credits being encouraged to switch to P&I with large discounts, and the weak credits that may continue to access interest-only borrowing, lies the “near prime” borrowers being heavily encouraged (by higher rates and in some cases by direct contact in writing) to switch to non-traditional (shadow) lenders being funded through parcelling up of residential mortgage-backed securities sold to investors.

    It’s all a fraught game of pass the parcel at present.

    No wonder the Australian economic “elite” in Australia have had no time for much needed microeconomic reform – that parcel has gotten mighty heavy and even more toxic!
