Hey Elisha,
The link is either broken or can't be displayed at work.  Can you give us a synopsis please?
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -- Douglas Adams

Looks pretty simple and funny.  I'm bandwidth limited and I can't see all 45 slides except to say I understand the gist of the Mortgage crisis, what goes up artificially, must crash and burn.   ;D

Great stuff.  What do our numbers wizards think of it?  Seem fairly accurate?
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Viewer discretion advised.  Salty language ahead.

Really funny, though.  I actually learned something about investing.

Yes, and without the political finger-pointing. And it does need a PG-17 rating.

Sorry about that - I poached it from another message board that is more general.  There are some altruists there, but a lot who aren't.  I'm an actuarial dropout and it was from an Actuarial message board I still occasionally visit.  Everyone there loved it.

That's enough for me...

As a practicing accountant, I give my seal of approval for accuracy. As far as this topic is concerned, I have nothing good to say about it other than I wish I was making over $1M and in charge of a bank.
