  1. Didn't the government force banks to make risky mortgages?
    Ultimately, it was a lack of personal responsibility that caused the crisis.
    Why would anyone take out a mortgage that they can't afford?
    Too many idiot's caused the crisis.

  2. The government thru Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac forced lenders to give mortgages to unqualified people. Calling them before Congress and accusing them of systemic racism, these lenders bundled these loans to partition them away from their normally bonded loans. They began to hide them in other bundled products and pass them around like a hot potato. It was predictable and preventable and initiated by the US government, period.

  3. We made good Money with this.
    Your assertion that an insurer should back each underwriting with full collateral is utter nonsense.
    The entire idea of insurance is to use statistics to predict damage and thus NOT having to collateralize in full. Because if you had to then our modern world would not work.
    Or how do you think people would be able to collateralize the potential liability of running over a pedestrian in their car? No-one would be able to afford running a car. And the same applies to any other insurance you can imagine, including insurance against house-owners not paying their mortgage.

  4. Politicians who are so good at getting their own snouts in the trough should be held personally liable for such obvious neglect.
    Gordon Brown, a bigot, with an inflated opinion of his ability should never have been allowed to walk away from the mess his policies created.

  5. The term "to big to fail" started when the banks bank's heavily invested on the Penn Central RR and convinced the government to buy it and it became Amtrack and Conrail.

  6. To blame the 2008 recession on sharp traders, broke home buyers, or anyone else, is too simplistic. The culprit in everything is us, period. All the mind-boggling benefits we get (ask anyone in Europe or the rest of the world) is far more than we can afford. Yet, no one except people derided as 'kooks' have objected to this chronic over-promising. If you demand Congress 'get real', our problems end, but only if our over-spending does. And, yes, I am a retired CPA…

  7. My American ex-mother-in-law
    once told me:
    "We'll go 'stated', 'no doc',
    this is the USA, it's 'OPM' "
    … glad I never went for it.

    There was a lot going on in the crisis, and this added an important piece. Until now, while I knew about MBS's and CDO's and the crooked 'Masters of the Universe' at the Ratings Agencies, I had not fully understood AIG's nor CDS role in the collapse, and the linkage to Lehman's fall … which was in turn the most visible consequence at the time, and the apparent (but not) trigger for the downturn.

    Thankyou for the video.
