Welcome To The Crisis Of Credit 1

Finally an explanation in plain English of what has and is going on in this crisis everybody over the whole world is talking about. Jonathan Jarvis of www.crisisofcredit.com (The site is currently unavailable due to the crazy amount of traffic) did an outstanding job by producing the video below (maybe not visible in your reader due to a bug in feedburner) where he visualized the whole process from greed to worldwide fiasco.

The narration is done by John Levoff and the music by DJ Skwint.

I hope you are as glad as I am to learn from Jonathan. I am however delighted that he made this complex topic understandable for everyone in an entertaining way. Thank you very much!

The Short and Simple Story of the Credit Crisis.


The goal of giving form to a complex situation like the credit crisis is to quickly supply the essence of the situation to those unfamiliar and uninitiated. This project was completed as part of my thesis work in the Media Design Program, a graduate studio at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

For more on my broader thesis work exploring the use of new media to make sense of a increasingly complex world, visit jdjarvis.com.

    What a great video! I learned a lot. I only knew about half of this stuff and I did not have a grasp of half of it. Very informative and entertaining, in a suicide-inducing way!
    Thanks, Mario! And thanks to Crisisofcredit.com!
