Reason's posting on CFO.com:
"It would be no surprise to my colleagues, who
roll their eyes whenever I mention securitization, that one of my
favorite websites is Vinod Kothari's Securitization Website. What
it lacks in sophisticated design, it more than makes up for in sheer
volume of information about a fairly arcane topic. And Vinod Kothari's
enthusiastic analysis of all things securitization (even one of
my articles) makes me think that if he ever showed up at our office
in person, my co-workers would run screaming for the door."
