The nation survived the collapse of the WTC. It would also survive a collapse of Citi. Our country DID manage to find a way to live without Citi for many many years before Citi existed, and after some initial pain we would get along just fine without it.
Well, my mortgage, after many transfers that is out of our control, is with Citi. We have never once missed a payment, we have a 5.25% 30-year loan with 20% down on an affordable $300k house in Portland,OR, considering the market, and we pay our taxes.
We had no choice in Citi backing our loan after many transfers. I’m not sure what the WTC has to do with your comparison. Please elaborate.
