The Crisis of Credit Visualized from Jonathan Jarvis on Vimeo.
A lot of our listeners wanted to share this video with us, including its designer Jonathan Jarvis. He writes:
I wanted to send you this animation I just posted explaining the subprime crisis simply and in a way (that I think) is good-looking and fun to watch. I am sending it to you because listening to your podcasts and the This American Life episodes in no small way inspired and helped me along the way.
Thanks Jonathan! My favorite part — the depiction of a subprime mortgage (it's at about 7:30).
