Cramdowns = Moral hazard

Cramdowns and permanent debt modifications (1) are an admission that the loan should never have been approved (2) let some borrowers off the hook when others are left to drown (3) often are administrative nightmares to finalise and police and (4) don’t work anyway.

Good luck to those American banks trying to negotiate cramdowns whilst trying to stay alive.

You’re gonna need it.
