My brain has been spinning a lot of cycles on our great nation’s economic downturn. I’ve come across a couple of things that have helped me understand what’s going on economically. Maybe they’ll help you, too.
First, the blog The Baseline Scenario has a lot of great explanations and a healthy dialogue about what has happened and what will come of the stimulus package. I’ve become a daily reader.
I also just came across a video that does a great job of explaining how the banks came undone last fall. Crisis of Credit explains it visually and in easy terms.
I also have Frontline’s Inside the Meltdown on my Tivo, I plan to watch it sometime this week. I may post more thoughts here after I’ve had a chance to watch it.
