Ottawa’s bubble

Garth Turner: “If I want to buy that $400,000 house and have $200,000 for a downpayment, why am I paying the same mortgage interest rate as the first-timers who barely have pizza money? Don’t they constitute a larger risk? Where’s the risk premium on the money loaned to them? Why is this system so screwed up that ultra high-risk borrowers have money showered upon them by our famously conservative and prudent banks?”
