This video shows the events of the 2008 financial recession. This event affected the whole world and cause major indices to fall about 40% from their highs and took several years to recover. This video is to show the dangers of investing and how no matter what low-risk stock you own, a crash of this magnitude has happened and can happen again so there is no such thing as a no-risk investment. Many companies went into bankruptcy, including bank giant Lehman Brothers, and many others were damaged for many years to come. The closest thing to the 1929 depression, the 2008 recession is the closest thing to the end of capitalism the United States has seen in the 21st century. I hope viewers can take away the notion that investing carries high risk, and you could lose everything if you are not diversified.
