Get a handle on what’s happening in the finance industry

September 18th, 2008

Leave it to the guys at Freakonomics to find some experts to explain what’s going on in the markets.

Steven Levitt found a couple of finance experts to provide easy-to-understand answers to the most basic questions regarding what happened with Lehman, Frannie and Freddie, and A.I.G. It’s the best explanation I’ve ¬†found so far.

By the way, if you haven’t read Freakonomics yet, you’re missing out on an opportunity to get a good handle on thinking the way an economist does. In addition, the Freakonomics blog is a great read for any armchair economist…wait, aren’t all economists armchair?
