- How is the "World Financial Crisis" defined in the video?
- How is Wall Street connected to the 'houses on Main street'?
- Who did did the investors answer "No thanks!", when and why?
- What can cause banks to go crazy with leverage?
- How does leverage work?
- What is a collateral debt obligation or "CDO"?
- What is a credit default swap?
Engloy the videos and be ready to discuss them in class.

  1. WHAT I CAN SAY IS THAT WHEN YOU PLAY IN A PRIMIER LEAGUE, YOU PLAY WITH PREMIUM PROFIT AND PREMIUM RISK
    MAKING MONEY AS EASIER AS POSIBILE ALWAYS WAS A DREAM FOR EVERYONE.
    AS SOON AS YOU HAVE A LOT OF MONEY YOU ARE LOOKING TO FIND BETER WAY FOR INVESTING THEM.
    THOSE BIG INVESTORS THAT HAVE A LOT OF MONEY, AND ARE LOOKING FOR NEW IDEAS...FOUNDED!!!
    BUT EVERYTHING WHAT IS NEW AND UNCHEKED...IS RISKY, AND HOW MUCH MONEY THEY INVEST , THE BIGER RISK IS
    ACTUALY I THINK THAT THEY ALLREADY PREDICT THAT KIND OF RISK...BUT TILL THEY NOT FEEL THAT BY THEMSELFS, THEY CANT STOPED
    SOO...WHAT CAN WE DO KNOW AS A FUTURE INVESTORS TO NOT REPEAT THE SAME STUPID THING...AS A STUDENTS, TO ANALISE DETAILED ALL OTHERS MISTAKES, AND ELABORATE FOR FUTURE MORE EFICIENT IDEAS!!!
