The principles of the Portfolio Theory are connected to the Financial Crisis that started as a bursting real-estate bubble in 2006. In this connection, it is shown that on the one hand the basic principles of Markowitz apply and might have helped to lower the extent of the crisis. On the other hand, the Risk-Return-Paradoxon which supported the evolution of the crisis is discussed.
