Funny, but this is more accurate.

I think the banks lost faith in their own lending standards, then each other, then everyone else.

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

: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

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.
