Banks take blame for crisis
The world’s leading banks on Wednesday publicly accepted much of the blame for the credit crisis, as the International Monetary Fund slashed its estimates for global growth and warned that the US downturn will last longer than most people expect.

The IMF said the US would suffer a recession this year, recovery would not begin until next year, and growth would remain well below trend even in 2009.
Now, if our bank would just kindly cough up the three grand or so in overcharges it owes us I'll say no more about it all.
