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?
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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.
