Crisis of Credit

Neat visualization/animation of the credit crisis. Even I can understand this...

There are also three episodes of This American Life that do a good job of laying this out---
The Giant Pile of Money (5/9/08)
Another Frightening Show About the Economy (10/3/08)
Bad Bank (2/27/09)
All available free for streaming here:

Also, the two guys who collaborated on these, one from Marketplace and one from TAL have a blog here:

I found the TAL episodes to be very helpful, in part because the first two in particular put a human face on these big picture calamities.
