I can't believe after seeing this that these mega-companies did not see this coming. Obviously, they had to have been extremely optimistic about the outcome of all this continuous borrowing and had a lot of faith in their investors. I personally wouldnot have put all of my trust into someone else's ability to pay off their debt.I guess this is what happens when you neglect to draft a Plan B.
