What Was The Subprime Mortgage Crisis Song On NPR's Marketplace?
September 17, 2019 3:53 PM   Subscribe

About a decade ago, a radio show presented a catchy song, to explain to the layman what caused the sub-prime mortgage crisis. I distinctly remember "Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac couldn't get their money back." But that's all I remember of the lyrics. The show was probably NPR's Marketplace, but it may have been another similar radio show. The song was posted online, but now I can no longer find any record of it. Can you help me find it?

I love that song! But the song I am looking for is not "Bet Against The American Dream" (BATAD). BATAD does not contain the phrase "Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac wouldn't get their money back". BATAD is a musical theater style song instead of a barbershop quartet / a capella style song.

So it's not the one I'm looking for.

Thanks, though! I'm going to bookmark that one. It's great.
