Mortgage backed securities

by Jadrian

Stan tries to return his dad's Margarittaville machine so that his family can have a bit more money during the recession. Turns out that his dad bought it on a finance plan, which has been repackaged and sold to investors. Similar to mortgage-backed securities, loans can be issued for assets and then re-packaged to spread out risk among risky investments. If you're looking for an easy way to teach about the MBS crisis, this scene does a great job condensing the major components.
