Rural banks-Sub-prime debt woes=Better than most

How is the economy treating Americans? Let us count the ways:

--A 20 percent drop in home prices.

--A subprime mortgage market collapse reaching $300 billion.

--A near-failure of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which supplies the secondary market for mortgages.

--A severe banking crisis (with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation using 15 percent of its funds to bail out a single bank, IndyMac of California).

--A credit crunch, with a debt to disposable income rate of 140 percent, up from 100 percent in 2000 and total credit losses possibly topping $2 trillion.

--A U.S. recession of a magnitude not seen since the Great Depression.

These were the predictions of Dr. Nouriel Roubini, a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business-nearly two years ago.

Emphasizing the accuracy of his predictions, Roubini, in an interview
