Revised and extended links on the financial problem

I have revised my earlier set of links about the financial crisis. The new set was prepared for my MBA students and focuses on the five government-related causes of the problem:

Zoning and other land-use controls

Low interest rates from about mid-2001 to mid-2005

Federal housing policy: Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the CRA

Regulatory arbitrage

Distorted incentives of the ratings agencies

There are also links to whether the repeal of Glass-Steagall was a cause, other information, different perspectives than the one I present, and other linkfests.
