Jon did a very informative show (in his usual style, of course) on this whole thing. He even went out of his way to show the hypocrisy of the MBA (you know, their typical banker morality of “Do as I say, not as I do”).

The US wasn’t the only place with a housing bubble, in some ways Spain was even worse, but other countries were much better at dealing with it. Even Iceland has been more effective at cleaning up the mess than the Goldman Sachs alumni that Obama brought in with him.
