Thanks for sharing. So true that "homeowners are getting lambasted for doing what companies do on a regular basis". All the best to you in 2012!

More opinions than you want to hear about.

This guy insists on encouraging individuals to behave badly because some corporations behave badly.  He has not demonstrated that he understands one significant difference between humans and corporations.  When a corporation gets far enough underwater, it declares bankruptcy and it is dissolved.  It is history, and the principals simply seek funding and create another corporation.  I guess humans could be dissolved, but most would regard being ended as not particularly desirable.  Basically, they will not become history, but instead live with their history. Surowiecki is a writer with an imagination, generally a positive quality.  From his CNBC interview a couple weeks ago, it appears that he is also acting as an armchair lawyer giving armchair advice.
