Saturday will have been a decade since the collapse of the Lehman Brothers investment bank triggered a global recession.

While the crisis played out on Wall Street and in government ministries, its roots lay in small towns and cities across the US, where families pursuing the so-called “American Dream” of home ownership fell victim to unscrupulous banks and predatory lending schemes.
