Explaining the credit crisis

MonopolyAre your eyes glazing over with all the news about bailouts, sub-prime mortgages, credit swaps, etc?

I found a couple of resources extremely helpful in boiling all the confusion down to (more) understandable language:

This show is the most engaging and entertaining show I’ve heard that makes some sense of the new market for “normal” people:

this panel from the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan is much more dry, but very educational:

Ross Panel Tackles the Financial Crisis:  What Happened?  Why?  What’s Next?

Don’t bury your head in the sand–find an hour, take a listen, and be a little more informed.  It’s worth it!
