Planet Money is committed to following the financial crisis to the bitter end. And what better way to do that than to own a piece of it. We bought one of those things that no one wanted, one of those things that almost brought down the global economy: our very own toxic asset. This one had more than 2,000 mortgages in it. After months of foreclosures, home sales and loan modifications our toxic asset died in September 2010. We paid $1,000 of our own money for our piece of it and ended up losing over half.
