Um . . . this isn't simply misunderestimating, Scott, this =misunderestimating-$12 billion

You see, they're not actually skimming off their regular customers this time, they're skimming off other banks (and investment funds). So folks with non-FDIC insured investments or deposits in places that would seemingly have nothing to do with BofA are going to take in in the face. Well diversified mutual funds might be fine in the long run, but I have no idea about other types of subprime debt buyers. Because it was a cash fund, I'm thinking a lot of hedge funds are going to hurt. This may or may not have a trickle down effect. Hedge funds did some funny, but not exactly humorous, things to us in the 80's.

It looks like they are trying to stem liquidity of this particular fund. Does that mean that they don't trust their investors or are they anticipating something?


They are anticipating massive withdrawals from investors and being left holding a bag of s**t.
