House of Cards (LCICBC02)

FP Canada Accreditation: 1.0 Practice Management Credits

When Lehman Brothers collapsed in September 2008, heralding the onset of a recession, the focus was on the greed and vanity of the Americans who ran the doomed investment giant. But The Fifth Estate has uncovered the Canadian connection to that collapse. His name: Brian Chisick. A Grade 10 dropout from Vancouver who moved to California, Chisick pioneered a predatory type of lending there. Wall Street behemoths like Lehman Brothers bankrolled Chisick and learned that they could sell bad loans to millions of people. House of Cards is also the story of one of Wall Street’s “masters of the universe,” Lehman Brothers’ chairman and CEO Richard Fuld. His company’s lending practices would eventually cause the collapse of the storied financial institution.
