Four and a half minutes … who’d have thunk it could be boiled down to that? I particularly enjoy the stick figures and dramatic drum music. You’ll also notice that this 4:28 video is only part of the story about the economic meltdown. There’s a part two, if you can manage to sit through another 9:13.
The point here isn’t to suggest that this is a good history of the economic collapse, it’s more to show you what happens when you write the history of the world using YouTube.
