I popped over to Breaking Views just now to see what they had to say about Barclays buying ABN Amro, and what’s the big top headline? “Subprime meltdown echoes dotcom death spiral“.
The story itself is pretty smart and sober, as one would expect from its author (and friend of felixsalmon.com) Antony Currie. I have no idea whether Antony had any part in writing that headline, but for getting both “meltdown” and “death spiral” into one six-word hed, I hereby award Breaking Views the first Housing Hysteria Award (these, collectively, are known as the Nouriels). Congratulations Breaking Views!
