If anyone has trouble understanding what happened this skit does a good job of highlighting how it went down !.
While there take a peek at some of the other skits !

Funny, but this is more accurate.
I think the banks lost faith in their own lending standards, then each other, then everyone else.

Do you seriously think that someone will sit for 48 minutes in this now world?

:7 :7 Not sure about other people, but I'm realy trying to figure out what's been happening. I've watched this twice, it simplifies things to where I'm almost close to maybe seeing a dim flickering lite.:P

I suggest you, and everyone take the time to watch it. I certainly found it enlightening, and while I don't yet understand all the ramifications of any possible solution, it has caused me to think about a problem I was not totally aware of. World economic collapse is inevitable, and built into our monetary system.

While I find your link interesting and provocative, I have some serious reservations about the accuracy of it. The producer of the video is a graphic artist and NOT an economist. Neither is he a historian. He's just a guy with an opinion. Further, I think he is a guy with an agenda. There is a strong whiff of conspiracy mentality in his film, with more than one reference to "world bankers" and the "Trilateral Commission." There is also the slight stench of anti-Semitism. In all, I don't think this is a film worthy of serious academic consideration. Take it with a VERY large grain of salt.

I didn't like the degradation of the profession of dog grooming.
