Investigate the delicate balance of corporate loans; Sal lays it out as corporations in need of loans, companies giving them out, and the risk of insurers. Learners are introduced to hedge funds and explore how an investor could back multiple loans even if they don't actually have the amount in assets, relying on other companies not to default. He also briefly demonstrates the "house of cards" that collapses if one company goes under.
