Yesterday, I gave a talk to the Salem Rotary Club about the credit crisis. I attempted in about 20 minutes to give a broad overview of the short history of the crisis. Doing so forced me to paint in fairly broad strokes and neglect a lot of detail, but I think the essence is correct.
The text below is a paraphrase of what I said as I did not speak from a script, I have also included my power point slides.
I have now arranged my posts to be consecutive so you can read them in order immediately following this post. I hope you find it useful and interesting.
