Abstract

With the door closed on 2008, but the economic crisis still firmly planted on 2009's stoop, the Milken Institute has closely examined the root causes behind the buildup and collapse of the mortgage market.

This report is a brief preview of the extensive data collection and in-depth analysis conducted by Milken Institute economists on the mortgage meltdown and the ensuing financial crisis. It provides insight and information that breaks through the rhetoric and attention-grabbing headlines, along with policy recommendations for moving forward.
