Video-o-rama: A mixed-up financial world

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

Although this is a short week in the US as a result of the Thanksgiving holiday, there certainly has not been a lack of video clips trying to make sense of the latest on the bailout front, rapidly deteriorating global economies and other pertinent matters.

A number of the more interesting clips that have attracted my attention are shared below.

First up is a rather disconcerting clip featuring Peter Schiff assessing the implications of current US economic policies by means of similar historical situations elsewhere in the world. (In the same vein, also make sure to watch the Max Keiser interview in the last clip.)
