The Collapse of Lehman Brothers – A Simple Overview financial crisis 2008 explained

by royajade123VGUYF



The Lehman Brothers bankruptcy is the largest one of all time and it helped spark the 2008 financial crisis. The subject can be a bit complex but given that it’s such a historical event, I think it’s worth learning about. In this video, I did my best to give a simple overview of the situation.

I think it was a great vid. But around 7:17, banks and firms were reckless making mortgages b/c they could turn around and sell them to people who would bundle them into Mortgage-Backed Securities, not because it is easy to sell a house they're super illiquid

Thank You Company Man for putting it in layman's terms. You clearly point out that Lehman took a massive gamble by going all in on the housing market as it was collapsing which doomed the company. The company going into debt to buy more in hindsight is beyond Ludacris. I don't know how many books and TV shows I have seen on this topic that couldn't just state what you said very clearly. Of course they were involved with the subprime industry CDO's all the banks were. They spent money when they didn't have it and got screwed when the whole housing market tanked which took down the entire stock market with it.

Totally wild that this video can talk about purchase and sale of cotton in the mid-1800s, then describe the collapse of that market and not once mention slavery.

Seems like they were simply getting into too much. Somebody got greedy. I wonder how the original founders would have thought about expanding like this.

Your explanations of very complicated financial sleight of hand is illuminating. It isn’t my field, so simple explanations are very appreciated. Even though I’ve read the financial news for years, the LBO’s and pyramid schemes of the financial whizzes has always seemed less than straightforward. I used to eat lunch where all the guys from Drexel Burnham also ate lunch, bragging about all their wheeling and dealings. I suppose, in that era, they didn’t think a woman would have any clue as to what they were talking about. But it was fascinating to hear them openly talk about clearly sketchy financial shenanigans. I guess because they were making so much money, they thought they were untouchable. The week after the indictments, you could have shot a cannon through the restaurant and not hit a single Drexel guy!

Thanks for your excellent posts!
