The real story

The bankers formed a great system over the last few decades which got them super rich and helped people all over the country buy products they couldn't yet afford.

The problem?

Those bankers mostly just cared about money, and they were willing to cheat and take on high-risk loans and sell them off to foreign investors and other companies.

The result?

The crash of 2008.
