ABSTRACT
The article presents review of the American secondary mortgage market. The American secondary mortgage market system is likely to get a thorough going over by lawmakers. The operations of the government sponsored enterprises like Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Banks, as well as Ginnie Mae will become very familiar topics for politicians by the end of 2005. Hedge accounting, interest rate spreads, prepayments, guaranty fees and other arcane topics will all become part of the working vocabulary for members of the two banking committees.
