Credit Cards Are Frothy, Not Bubbly

An interesting take on how credit card companies will manage to keep themselves afloat in a recession and possible credit crisis: "There is a whole other category of credit card users who are likely to become profitable for credit card issuers: those who usually pay off their balances every month, but because of the recession find themselves needing to go into debt. That ability to do so may be costly, and surely will breed resentment, but it will also wind up saving the credit card companies. Heads you lose, tails they win."
