Uber-Explainer

This American Life’s ‘Giant Pool of Money‘ is still the best explainer out there on the credit crisis – and its spawn, NPR’s Planet Money, is the best day-to-day summary for everyone like me who is still confused.

But this video is freakin cool:

The Crisis of Credit Visualized from Jonathan Jarvis on Vimeo.

The graphic design is beyond me, but a great example of how to combine a whole bunch of mediums – with a narrator – to explain something clearly and concisely.
