The Credit Crisis Visualized

I may know a little bit about the current financial environment, however, I don’t know how the credit crisis. So, most of the talks about lending to banks and why this is important went over my head. So, I found this video to be very informative. I hope it helps you out as much as it helped me.

The Short and Simple Story of the Credit Crisis.

The goal of giving form to a complex situation like the credit crisis is to quickly supply the essence of the situation to those unfamiliar and uninitiated. This project was completed as part of my thesis work in the Media Design Program, a graduate studio at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

    What? You mean "Bush Did It!" is not the correct answer? OMG, blacks are gonna think you sold out. LOL.

    To say "Bush Did It" is one thing. To show HOW his policies help is another. But this is a LONG TERM problem, not just something that happened.

    I agree. This had been brewing for over a decade not Clinton, not Bush 41 had anything directly to do with it. In reality, there were members of congress who wanted to put the brakes on Fannie and Freddy before they became issues. Because of Franklin Raines, they were called racists. (rolls eyes).. Anyway the bus is here, and it ran us over..
