    Not really sure what your point is.
    Companies buy and sell debt all the time. My student loan has been sold 4-5 times since I've had it.

    The more you post your drivel the more you make me think the real Wes would mess you up pretty good for you abusing his name.

    80*129,000,000,000 = 103,200,000,000 or 25,800,000,000 less

    He who panics first survives.
    I can see lehman and goldman are going to be regular customers at Mcfed's new drive thru window. ;)

    Unless I missed it in the article (bloomburg's, not the little blog you posted), they never said how much the stuff was bought for, for example.

    Goldman, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and Morgan Stanley are among securities firms and banks holding $129 billion of LBO loans.

    There is supposedly like $300 Billion of this stuff that was hung up from last summer. Sounds like a $60 Billion loss for the boys to me.
