“I think it’s right that people are asking a lot of questions about how we’re going to deploy this but let’s think about it this way. First, we need to stabilize our financial institutions so they will be in a position to lend and second, stronger financial institutions are going to be in a better position to provide credit. So if we see acquisitions occurring, those stronger institutions will be better positioned to provide the result that we’re looking for with deployment with the assets.”
