harpmolly BS: Financial Crisis Explained (51* d) RE: BS: Financial Crisis Explained 13 Oct 08

Dave the Gnome...I *just* started reading "Making Money" again last night. Unfortunately, it's a little freaking scary how apropos it is. Of course, Pterry has always had a gift for precognitive satire, but this is giving me the heebie-jeebies.

On the plus side, it stars Moist von Lipwig, one of his best characters. :D

On-topic: Another terrific explanation of the crisis, which may have been mentioned elsewhere, was the "Giant Pool of Money" show done by This American Life (they've done some great follow-ups, too, and have a "Planet Money" podcast that's quite intriguing.)
