What is interesting about looking back to 2006 and indeed for much of 2007 is that the mainstream media and the banks really didn’t see it coming - their only concern was interest rates and they spared little thought of what a recession might mean. This, despite the fact that recessions happen at regular intervals and the standard mortgage will at best see two of them.
