If you’re like me, you’re clued in to our financial crisis but you don’t know a lot about the background reasons it happened. So I’ve been trying to educate myself. I just got Paul Krugman’s “The Return of Depression Economics and the Crisis of 2008” out of the library – a little light reading for this beachy weekend. But I also watched these awesome little videos that help explain what the heck is going on, and why. I don’t know anything about the folks who made these videos – I picked them up on Rhode Island’s Future – but I sure hope the next episode is on its way.
