The mortgage mess explained

I found this at http:/ The humor is characteristically English: ironic and understated. Which among other things means I'm not entirely sure that the guy being interviewed isn't exactly what he identifies himself as: an investment baner. If any of my friends across the pond know who these guys are, please let me know.

(Note that this is politically incorrect enough to have bugged me, in that their example subprime borrower is "an unemployed black man in a string vest."* But it's too funny not to pass along.)

* In English English, a vest is an undershirt; I reckon string vest is a white cotton undershirt, from being made of the same material as string. But I'm not sure.
