This paper explores the financial crisis of 2007-2010 and its causes, including: questionable monetary policy, loose lending standards, the emergence of structured finance products designed to conceal the true risk of subprime loans, a lack of independence and due diligence on the part of credit rating agencies, and the failure of oversight bodies to properly monitor or regulate the parties responsible for the crisis.
