Tues 8.10.10| Picturing the Meltdown

Seth Tobocman and Eric Laursen, Understanding the Crash Soft Skull Press, 2010

 

 

Derivatives, options, futures, swaps -- such byzantine financial inventions make the economic crisis seem unknowable. But, as Seth Tobocman and Eric Laursen contend, that's a politically convenient way of seeing the world. They have set for themselves the task of explaining the crisis and doing so in a way that is comprehensible to the woman or man on the street. And the comic book is their medium of choice.
