This week, we are presenting a radio comic strip about the new economy. In part one, a middle class family, hit by the subprime mortgage crisis, comes up with an innovative way to save $500. The comic, known as 11 Central Ave., is produced by Susan Shepherd in association with Chicago Public Radio. Below, a visual interpretation of the audio.
