2. After reading this case, what do you think were the main causes of the Financial Crisis? Has anything changed today?
3. How can a firm motivate salespeople who work on commission (as many mortgage brokers did in the run-up to the Financial Crisis) to sell products that are in their customers’ interests rather than their own?
4. Consider how many credit cards you carry, and how many loans you’ve taken out. Do you think that reform of the credit-fueled economic model in the West is essential for a more equitable global economy?
