Great video

The Crisis of Credit Visualized. 12 minute animated clip doing a good job of explaining the origins of the crisis. Very easy to understand, I plan on showing it to my classes.

I got a little flak at work for thinking the video was good for students. The video doesn't mention anything about the govt's role. The emphasis on home ownership and the tax incentives of owning a home helped fuel demand for homes. Pressure was also put on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to have more low-income mortgages in their portfolios.

Bummer :( I liked it, but I am neither an economist nor a professor.
