The Very Helpful Credit Crisis Video

Many people have heard of the economy tumbling because of the housing crisis which became a credit crisis. At first, I had no knowledge of what such a crisis meant. I learned more through many mornings of waking up to CNBC but I was still confused. And since the economy went down the drain, I didn’t care and didn’t want to watch any more tickers with numbers in the negative and in red.

Anyway, this video makes it simple to understand how our recession came to be. Watch and learn.

    Simon I will give you credit you found a simple video that honestly explains how greed got us into this mess.

    And it was not just one groups greed, but the greed of all of us in society, we are all connected to this mess in some way. The fantasy is over and it is time to pay the piper.

    Simon you are on the right route to end up prosperous, but it takes time. You have gotten a good start from parents that taught you not to waste your money. Just stay out of debt as much as possible and you will get there.

    The unfortunate fact is that very few of us had parents that did that. That is why we and our nations are all in such deep debt. Some of us have done what it takes to get out of debt, but many will take the easy route, by not paying their debts.

    All the best for a bright future from
