"Great Recession" of 2007-09 Professor Jonathan Levy talked about the so-called “Great Recession” of 2007 to 2009, the worst financial crisis in the U.S. since the Great Depression in the 1930s. He traced the origins of the crisis to the late-1990s stock market boom-and-bust, and looked at how the housing market of the 2000s mimicked some of the same patterns. He also talked about some of the exotic financial instruments developed during this time, the practice of banks using overnight short-term credit markets to stay afloat, and the unprecedented actions taken by the Federal Reserve to rescue the economy after it collapsed. close
