The Crisis of Credit Visualized

This thing’s been going around and I would like to pass it along.  Jonathan Jarvis, a graduate student at the Art Center in Pasadena, has put together a thoroughly concise and simplified explanation of the credit crisis – as it relates to Sub-Prime Mortgages.  It’s an eleven minute video that uses animation to break the matter down into a simple and highly visual explanation.  No charts or graphs here.  Just clean visuals, very interesting information, and a message that says a lot about the banking industry.  It’ll be over in about the same time it would take to finish a bowl of cereal.
