ABSTRACT
In this article, the editor discusses the issues involving the overhaul of the U.S. government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He believes that the rehabilitation of GSEs can only be done by dividing them in three parts. He suggests that the GSEs should be reformed into liquidating trusts and private mortgage businesses, and integrated into the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
