I have to admit, I still don't quite understand all the nuances of the current economic crisis and the Wall Street bailout. I just keep thinking that it seems like the biggest ransom plan in world history. A group of super rich bastards have the cash and they want more; to get an economy back, we have to give them the ransom. It feels more like "bank heist" than "bank help."
I've really been trying to unravel this knot and videos like this help - even if it is rather basic. In fact, I think this is the most honest assessment of the crisis I've seen.
The best part? The video was recorded last year in England. British comics could see it coming, but BushCo couldn't. Jesus Christ. *sighs*
