The Financial Crisis explained in Plain English - really!

No, not by the Common Craft Show. But by Jonathan Jarvis, a student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. As part of his thesis work he has put together a great animated clip - Crisis of Credit - that explains the financial mess, we are in right now. And he managed to explain everything in a language, everyone can understand...

Also a great example for what Citizen Generated & Social Media can achieve. I haven't seen anything as easy to understand as this clip in mainstream media. But thanks to modern technology everyone creative enough to do it, can find the tools to create something like this clip without prohibitive high costs. And thanks to Social Media, this great content then gets distributed all over the world without the backing of a big media company...
