Hate to disagree but if the rating agencys had done their job and rated the bonds as junk instead of AAA the mortgage companys could not of unloaded it. I put 90% of the problem on the ratings scam.

Let's not forget that the Dems (in particular Barney Frank) encouraged Fannie and Freddie to subsidize mortgages for any and everybody adding fuel to the fire. The FED mispriced interest rates as well so the gov't did have a large role in the shenanigans.
