Crisis of Credit


The Crisis of Credit Visualized from Jonathan Jarvis on Vimeo.One of the best explanations of the current credit crisis. It shows how ordinary homeowners defaulting aren’t solely to blame and the problems are systemic tracing back to the lowering of the Fed rate and repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 that allowed creation of mortgage-backed securities. But I’m no economist and reasons are far more complex that I could even begin to explain here. The sociological impacts on the neighborhoods however are only beginning to show with abandoned homes that are only making the problem worse.
