The True Cause of Our Troubles

Everyone is running around trying to point fingers at who or what is responsible for the current state of the US financial situation. "It's the failed economic policies of the Bush administration!" "It's Bill Clinton's push to have more minorities own homes!" Here's a pretty good overview of how we got here. It's from NPR, and it's surprisingly non-political. I listen to NPR, but I don't usually recommend their stories for the same reason I don't recommend ones from the likes of MSNBC or Fox News--I hate biased commentary passed off as news, regardless of the source. Kudos to NPR for acting like real journalists. If you're dead set on keeping your head in the sand because you want to blame one thing or the other, you have a built-in excuse to not listen to this one--it takes about an hour to listen to the whole thing, but it's well worth the time.
