48. 8 who saw the crisis coming...and 8 who didn't

Sean Egan
Egan-Jones Ratings

A vocal critic of rivals Moody's, Fitch, and Standard & Poor's, Egan has a track record of warning investors about poor credit quality long before the Big Three ratings agencies. Most recently he said to shun subprime-mortgage-backed bonds even while the other agencies said these were investment-grade credits.


Others are listed, but how funny that no DU'ers are in the list of those who saw the crisis coming...
