Excellent NYT Graphic On The Recent Financial Meltdown (NYT Via Boing Boing)

The New York Times is carrying a very well-done graphic (spotted first by Boing Boing) explaining the recent meltdown on Wall Street within the financial sector. The graphic, which, unfortunately, is not embeddable, allows the reader to instantly see why AIG gets a bailout and Lehman Brothers has to file for bankruptcy, for example. It does a remarkable job of explaining quite a bit without resorting to very many words. Worth the look.
