This much they promise you.

Citing scheduling conflicts, Ms. Whitney has declined an invitation to appear before the panel of the House Oversight and Government Reform. But the subcommittee’s chairman, Representative Patrick T. McHenry, Republican of North Carolina, said that would not dissuade him from investigating her record.

“This isn’t a gotcha thing, but she’s going to be part of the hearing, whether or not she participates,” he said. “If she doesn’t want to come forward in a venue like this, that makes a statement.”

    anyone got the Meredith “Paris Hilton” Whitney pics? She can’t be shy about sharing them:

    “Ms. Whitney has not been shy about making statements in the past, whether it was delivering bold predictions about unemployment or dressing up as Paris Hilton for her firm’s Halloween party. ”

    Watch out – she made Charlie go back to his Bond Buyer days and dust off his Monroe calculator.

    “Whitney made her prediction on December 19, 2010, nearly 6 weeks ago, and the market has experienced a total of one default, totaling just $6 million, according to Lebenthal & Co.
    Now consider this: The market would need an average of 2.15 defaults each week for them to reach 100 by December 19, 2011, $4.3 billion a week to reach her $200 billion default level — the lower end of her prediction of “hundreds of billions.” Not only that, if all 50 top cities went into default on all of their debt it would add up to just $83 billion, according to Lebenthal.”
