Credit crisis worse than LTCM

NEW YORK, Nov 9 (Reuters) - The credit crisis gripping the U.S. is now worse than the crisis of confidence following the collapse of Long-Term Capital Management in 1998 and recession risks are growing, said Jack Malvey, chief global fixed income strategist at Lehman Brothers.

"This is the deepest correction we've ever seen in structured finance," Malvey said in an interview on Friday. "This is now worse than Long-Term Capital. This is so dispersed, so interlocked and the relationships among the various entities are not as evident. This is a painful lesson in financial engineering."
