Default Chinese drywall worse than you can imagine

outlets and even jewelry."

We knew, or suspected most of that. But check this:

"Some Chinese experts, however, suspect that the culprit is a RADIOACTIVE
phosphorus substance - phosphogypsum - that is banned for construction use
in the U.S. but has been used by Chinese manufacturers for almost a decade."

Fortunately, much of this Chinese drywall was used during the housing boom
to accommodate zero-down-payment, sub-prime mortgage holders.



I was just wondering if these are the "toxic assets" that
are being referred to in the banking bailout? *snicker*
