Interactive: CDOs’ Interlocking Ownership
See their marvelous interactive graphic to get a visual for the incestuous double-dealing Wall Street devised to earn record profits at the expense of the tax payer.
- Click on a CDO to see the other CDOs it swapped unsold pieces with.
- Click on an underwriting bank, for example Merrill Lynch, to see which banks’ CDOs had cross-ownership.
- Click on the bank tab to get a sense of how many instances of cross-ownership there were for any given bank. (Or see them all.)
