Higher interest rates can lead to a recession (possible job cuts from companies availing on low interest loans)
If not the highest, one of the highest.. 50 million shares short.

When they raise rates, it implies economy is healthy and housing will be ok even with higher rates. Then, FnF can be released from the trustee and function by itself again..
