    If the big bond insurers like MBIA and Ambac get downgraded because of the subprime mess, there could be a big ripple effect throughout the markets. A lot of investment-grade securities get their rating from the insurance policy (or “wrap”) that the bond insurers place on the issue. If the insurers get downgraded, a lot of debt instruments might also get downgraded. Among other things, entities that can only hold investment-grade instruments might be forced to sell lots of this stuff at the same time.
