Subprime outcomes: turmoil in the mortgage market


  • Christopher L. Foote
  • Ann Eggleston


Until 2007, few Americans had probably heard the word “subprime” - including many homeowners who would come to learn that their own mortgage was a subprime mortgage. Today, subprime mortgages are much discussed because they lie at the center of the turmoil that roiled credit markets in 2007 and 2008.
