I don't really think this explanation is worthy of mention on this great blog. I like most of everything that gets posted here, but in this case no. The animation (which isn't all that great) does little to communicate what was happening in the financial system. It mentions Forex but never defines or explains it. It mentions "Liquidity Crisis" but never defines liquidity. For all the time that it takes up, it's pretty shallow and the fact that it ends with a blatant pitch, makes it all the less objective. I thought this one: http://crisisofcredit.com/ was much more in-depth, sophisticated and objective.

Nice movie, obviously everyone and his own opinion.
I thought it was quite nice, the government bit cracked me up.
Well done on the effort

Graphics are great on this, there are missing a few bits and pieces in the story, but then again it is only 4 minutes compared to the crisisofcredit, so i guess it really sums it up.

keep up the good work, really cool way to pass this topic over
