The Subprime Primer

| February 29, 2008

My stalwart co-blogger, Bruce Henderson, has been waving his arms here on ASIP for roughly two years now about the coming financial crisis, with a particular focus on the subprime fiasco.

Well, here’s a link to a funny, scathing, profane, yet quite accurate presentation (using stick figures) on how we got into the subprime mess in the first place. Those of you who have read Henderson’s posting will recognize that he’s laid out most of these issue before. All of it brings up the question: what the hell were they (the various mortgage brokers and financial institutions) thinking?
