economics is not my strong suit, but beginning questioning the amount of new banks being built.. where I live there are two new economic areas that have developed in the past 5 or so years.. in each one there are at least 5 new banks.. some of which I never heard of.. they are all pretty imposing on prime real estate ... looks like huge investments.. are these the benefit of the mortgage industry?? Or is banking that lucrative?? Are these RE investments part of the Subprime problem?? Will the bottom fall out for these banks as credit tightens??
