The Credit Crisis, Visualized

There are some things my brain is not very good at comprehending or retaining, like principles of physics or Schrodinger's cat or the word "synecdoche". The credit crisis is one of them, so even after I instructed an investment banker friend to explain it to me in layman's terms "in 100 words or less", I still didn't get it (he flubbed the word count, by the way, probably used about 500 words in his attempt).

So I have to give this presentation props for making the credit crisis more comprehensible to those of us who don't live or breathe in the financial world.
