 Interesting article on what’s to come for the heavily  indebted, both a treat and an opportunity for most punters and a clear warning that the  heavily indebted will be dealing with a new banker within 2 years. If  he/she is a practical banker, it must be for the good. For those awake the opportunity is unbelievable but  those asleep will be eaten by sharks. For those with no debt I  can only say well done.
