  • It was very well down and gives a great explanation of how the credit crisis came to be. I agree, though, that Jarvis was coming down on the investors a bit heavily in some places. There was some responsibility to the borrowers who got themselves into situations they knew they couldn’t afford. But, aside from that, excellent visual!
