A Year Ago, JP Morgan Chase Paid The Largest Fine Ever For A Financial Institution

Just recently, a whistleblower who played a pivotal role in the case against JP Morgan came out.

J.P. Morgan played a large role in the mortgage crisis.

J.P. Morgan had routinely overstated the quality of the mortgages that is sold to investors.  When the mortgage securities turned bad, investors lost faith in the financial system, pulling money out, and leading to financial collapse.
