"Ecoland - Bubble Story" explains one of the driving forces behind the current banking crisis, and focuses on the destructive mechanics of the so-called "speculative bubble". Or, in the words of the authors, the movie "will help you find out, in less than 3 minutes, how the banker's problem became your problem." All in pixelated and animated infographics.

Watch the movie below.

The movie is from the same people behind the still impressive "How to Feed the World?". See also "The Credit Crisis Visualized" for another animated infographics take on explaining the casual factors behind the banking crisis.


I suppose you mean causal, not casual factors.

This is well-done except...

At 2:45 they make the leap from: 'homeowners saying they can't afford the payments' to: 'the bank needs money to prevent collapse'.

That leap is the crux of the whole issue, and unfortunately this doesn't explain it at all!

Bank balance sheets are boring, but you gotta hit that point I"m afraid.

Other than this pretty serious gap - the execution here is great.

Not as good as "Crisis of Credit Visualized".

This was excellent! Thanks. This gives me an idea. The answer to financial situations and the economy is "receiving and giving." For example, every person should be all the more willing to give so that they can receive. Give and it shall be given to you, pressed down, shaking together, and running over is how it will be given to you. One person gives you a loan, you use some and save some in order to pay back the loan, the most important thing to do though, is to keep your credit record clear of any debt. Then, you'll be able to apply for another loan, but don't borrow more than what you can pay back, because that is how people get into to too much debt, but rather be modest in your borrowing. Follow the same procedure of borrowing a small loan, use some to your need, save the rest in order to use it to pay back the lender. Then, youll be able to get another loan. This should be the primary design of our system. It's not how much we can get, but how much we can give. Also, in concert with my idea of borrowing, we should at the same time be rendering our manual labor services in order to reap pay and benefits from additional companies, wherever they are.
