Majority of homeowners are struggling both moral and social issues, as they are getting more frustrated with paying their obligations. There seem to be two sets of rules – one for the super rich, and one for the rest of us, but instead of calling defaulting on debt as being a deadbeat, they call it Strategic Default. Take Morgan Stanley for instance, which had obligations due on real estate property that they chose to simply return to the lenders rather than pay on obligations they could have actually paid. They had revenues of billions – it isn't as if they needed secured loan. The average person is subject to ridicule and shame for these things, but Morgan Stanley faces no consequences.
