The LIBOR Banking Scandal Explained

This video, titled, "Eliot Spitzer - LIBOR Mega scandal (total corruption) - YouTube" explains quite well the big mess 16 major banks in the world, and likely more, have created:

More information on LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate)
in part reads:

"Libor rates are calculated for ten different currencies and 15 borrowing periods ranging from overnight to one year and are published daily after 11 am (London time) by Thomson Reuters.[4] Many financial institutions, mortgage lenders and credit card agencies set their own rates relative to it. At least $350 trillion in derivatives and other financial products are tied to the Libor.[5]"

Did you read that?! "At least $350 trillion in derivatives and other financial products are tied to the Libor."!

"The Federal Reserve Bank of New York was warned as early as mid-2008 that banks may have been misreporting their Libor borrowing rate to aid their own trading positions, much earlier than previously known.

Tim Geithner, then president of the New York Fed and now US Treasury secretary, was told by a senior colleague in a May 2008 email of her concerns about banks' deliberate misreporting."
