Subprime Nation: Assets Could Be in Free Fall

Friday's downgrade of Treasury debt by Standard & Poor's may lead to a wholesale plunge in the value of many asset classes.

Treasury bonds, already at historic lows with some short-term notes yielding effectively zero, might get hammered, and if not, are pretty sure to face a long-term decline, according to this analysis.

Commercial real estate should drop, according to this Forbes report.

Residential real estate is described as "fragile" in the last paragraph of this other Forbes report which cites several commentators advising a move into hard assets like gold, silver and the stocks of companies which mine them.  But if you've been following Eric Dixon's Crime, Politics and Policy, you know my feelings that there already has been a long-term credit crunch impacting the housing market. 

The same Forbes report predicts major trouble for equities and particularly for the banks.

The damage may also be felt internationally.  Read this piece on what may happen abroad Sunday among the G-7 nations.
