The millennium created a great number of favourable conditions for the American economy. There was economic prsperity, the participants were optimistic, which was further enhanced by the optimisim of the fiscal and monetary authorities. These factors resulted in a very quick rise in the demand for real estate, a boom in the real estate price and in addition, the prosperity of the mortgage market. The low global level of interest made application for different types of mortgages possible for many people. This practice of granting credit lasted till 2007 when the real estate market bubble blown so huge in the previous years and was born and kept alive by the careless interest placement practice of credit institutions burst. The objective of our paper is to present the unstable state of financial instability through the example of the crisis of the American mortgage market by hihglighting the main reasons and arguments that generated and kept up the crisis. During the making of the study we relied on the most up-to-date sources to make a true picture of the present state of the crisis.
