American Predatory Lending and the Global Financial Crisis is a multi-method interdisciplinary team working under the Bass Connections project within Duke University. Over the past year, this student-faculty undertaking has explored the state-level dynamics leading up to the 2008 Crisis, focusing on experience in North Carolina. The team has conducted oral histories of legislators, banking sector leaders, regulators, and leaders of consumer groups; data analyses that detail the state’s residential mortgage landscape; and policy memos that outline the pattern of state and federal legislation that shaped the lending environment. This website is populated with the products of our collaborative research.
