A Guide to the Meltdown

Probably the best explanation that I've heard of just What The Hell Is Happening out there in the economy is this episode of NPR's This American Life.  You will come away enlightened, educated, but not reassured.  

It is an hour long episode, but it is very well done, and definitely worth your time.

Oh I have to listen to that. I am often so behind in listening to TAL as it is on at a weird time here in Albany, so I put it on my iPod.

Anyway about a week ago I randomly selected Giant Pools of Money and have listened to it 3 times since.

Holy crap- and that was in May.

God help us all.
