There were a lot more details. You left out the PMIC insurance policies.

One of the basic ideas was that any home loan that defaulted was that 80% of the sales price would be recovered in a bankruptcy. So borrowers with less than 20% down were required to buy an insurance policy covering that 20%.

Then the bonds began to fail, margin calls caused the markets to fall . . . it’s too late for the pebbles to vote once the avalanche has begun.
