Who authorized the securitisation of the CDO’s (Sub-prime Mortgage)? Like mixing good tomatoes with bad tomatoes inside the grocery bag. Was it the SEC? Do you believe that investors should chase SEC? Who is SEC then? Protector? Enforcer? Watcher? What then?

As someone posted earlier, they went after Spitzer because he kept after the illegal actions of banks and financial institutions. Had to go. I Can’t even express how disheartened I am in the Presiden’t decision to leave the same people who created the financial mess in charge of “fixing it”. Why should they fix something that’s made them multi millionaires?

Ten years ago this week, US investment bank Lehman Brothers collapsed, unleashing a global financial crisis. In this special edition of the show, we focus on that crash and the slow climb back to normal. We look back at the economic crisis with Adam Tooze, the author of “Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World”. 

September 15 marks the ten-year anniversary of what became known as “Lehman Weekend”, when US investment bank Lehman Brothers collapsed in the thick of the 2008 subprime mortgage meltdown. It was the biggest bankruptcy in US history, leading up to the world’s worst economic crisis since the 1930s Great Depression. 

After the peak of the 2008 financial crisis, millions of people lost their jobs and many also lost their homes. More than three million foreclosures took place in the US, and many more around the world.

5 Crisis On Wall Street: The Week That Shook The World (Part 1)

Back to menu

12 sep. 2018

 

Offering a sneak peak of the CNBC Original “Crisis On Wall Street: The Week That Shook The World” premiering Wednesday, Sept.12 at 10pm ET/PT.

Ten years after the fall of Lehman Brothers, CNBC has produced the definitive televised account of the historic bankruptcy and cascade of events over a September weekend in 2008 that led to the worst financial crisis in generations. In this prime time original documentary, Andrew Ross Sorkin, CNBC anchor and author of the groundbreaking best-seller “Too Big to Fail,” reports on how the nation and the world came as close as ever to a full economic collapse.

The story is told through gripping interviews with those at the highest reaches of the U.S. government as well as the CEOs of the nation’s largest banks who gathered to try to save Lehman Brothers from failure. Wall Street chiefs Jamie Dimon, John Thain, and others describe dramatic, around-the-clock negotiations. Former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Hank Paulson tells of the desperate moment when he realized that a Lehman bankruptcy could bring down the world’s financial system.

Could a financial crisis of this magnitude happen again? Sorkin puts that question time and again to the people gathered for this CNBC documentary, who shouldered the fate of the world’s finances and who recall the nightmare scenario they faced down ten years ago.

“It would be breadlines across the country for a generation,” former president of the N.Y. Federal Reserve Tim Geithner told Sorkin. “We did feel that we were making choices and faced with outcomes that would be devastating to the lives of hundreds of millions of people.”

9 Best Documentary of the Housing Market Crash (of 2020?) | Inside the Meltdown | Behind the Big Short

19 mei 2017

MELTDOWN – The Men Who Crashed The World

The first of a four-part investigation into a world of greed and recklessness that led to financial collapse.

In the first episode of Meltdown, we hear about four men who brought down the global economy: a billionaire mortgage-seller who fooled millions; a high-rolling banker with a fatal weakness; a ferocious Wall Street predator; and the power behind the throne.

The crash of September 2008 brought the largest bankruptcies in world history, pushing more than 30 million people into unemployment and bringing many countries to the edge of insolvency. Wall Street turned back the clock to 1929.

But how did it all go so wrong?

Lack of government regulation; easy lending in the US housing market meant anyone could qualify for a home loan with no government regulations in place.

Also, London was competing with New York as the banking capital of the world. Gordon Brown, the British finance minister at the time, introduced ‘light touch regulation’ – giving bankers a free hand in the marketplace.

All this, and with key players making the wrong financial decisions, saw the world’s biggest financial collapse.

10 The Wall Street Code – (vpro backlight documentary)

4 nov. 2013

A thriller about a genius algorithm builder who dared to stand up against Wall Street. Haim Bodek, aka The Algo Arms Dealer. After Quants: the Alchemists of Wall Street and Money & Speed: Inside the Black Box. This is the final episode of a trilogy in search of the winners and losers of the tech revolution on Wall Street. Trading on the financial market is not longer dominated by humans, but by super fast computers and algorithms. The result of this digital revolution on Wall Street is a complex and fragmented financial system that is hard to understand and overseen. A system that we are all connected to. The only people who understand the system a bit, are the people who built it.

Haim Bodek started his own high frequency trading in 2007 and built a from his point of view perfect and fast algorithm. One day it just stopped working. Profits disappeared en he went looking for the cause. He decided to go public with his search to display the rotten system.

This is an amazing documentary. It is a must watch for all financial professionals and those who are fascinated by financial wizardry.

I started off with the impression of this being a very shallow and “hyped” sort of production. But then, about 15 minutes into the video, things really shifted. Very informative, concise and valuable material, thank you for making this publicly accessible! – N
 
HeavyProfessor
Extremely well-made documentary film about the ins and outs of a tiny piece of an irreducibly complex puzzle.
Louis Boer
Haim’s code failed. The instant before the deal, many clients were suddenly “teleported” in line before him. And were serviced before him. For 12 months, Haim searched for the error in his code. There was none. During a social event, Haim learned the real reason: his order type was “wrong”. First time Haim heard about “incorrect order types”. Apparently, the “right” order type buys you precedence in line! Give the “right” person / agency some extra money. It’s an old trick. Like bribery.
Haim Bodek
For those who want to dig further into what is now known as the “order type controversy”, I have posted links to the major news articles and associated media on my web page. It has been a long slog since the news first hit in early 2012! Quick Update (4/2016): Bats/ Direct Edge settled the order type allegations with the SEC in Jan 2015. It was the largest fine against an exchange in US history.
Tilt11001
I love the in-depth journalism on the algo finance world but we should avoid making heroes out of people like Bodek, there is little to admire him for.

In the 2012 award-winning series Money, Power and Wall Street, FRONTLINE tells the story of the struggles to repair the economy after the 2008 financial crisis, exploring key decisions, missed opportunities, and the uneasy partnership between leaders of government and finance. 
 
In part one of Money, Power and Wall Street, FRONTLINE correspondent Martin Smith interviews leading bankers, government officials and journalists to chart the epic rise of a new financial order—and the trouble that followed. As Wall Street innovated, its revenues skyrocketed, and financial institutions of all stripes tied their fortunes to one another. Smith probes deeply into the story of the big banks—how they developed, how they profited, and how the model that produced unfathomable wealth planted the seeds of financial destruction.

“We’re all in this together,” said the bank executive worth hundreds of millions and who gets a golden parachute and a cushy bonus for “avoiding financial disaster.” They gambled with the livelihoods of millions and lost, and instead of repaying the people who footed their bailout, they walked off with after handing America an IOU written on a used napkin. They got bailed out again this past year when the pandemic recession rocked Wall Street again. That’s three major recessions in under 20 years, with zero repercussions, and not a single person put in prison for it. People asked for change, and instead it got a president that was adamant that lessons had been learned and they won’t do it again. We can’t keep doing this, funding their private casinos using pensions and mortgages as their betting chips.
Occam's Farm
I’m in financial services and even I can’t believe how much these guys got away with. The U.S. people gave them money with relatively no conditions. No financier in the world would have given them those terms. No restrictions? No conditions? Virtually no voting rights? If I were a U.S. citizen I would have been p*ssed..especially if I had lost my home, job and savings in the process. Catwoman said it best: The rich don’t go broke like the rest of us (paraphrased)
