Finance for 21st-Century Dummies

And now for something completely different: If the world of finance is Greek to you, but you feel like you need to keep up with news about the continuing crisis in financial markets, then you might want to read Jim Manzi’s “So Simple a Caveman Could Do It,” posted over at The American Scene.
