The credit crisis, explained

Check out this cool video from called "The Crisis of Credit Visualized."

It breaks down an incredibly complicated economic downturn into pretty pictures with stick figures and almost-understandable language. Not bad.

Video comes courtesy of Jonathan Jarvis, a grad student at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, who made the video for his thesis (beats 100 pages on the formation of the International Criminal Court any day).
