Video: The Crisis

Sure the economic crisis is bad. Billion. Trillion. Just words.

If there were only some way to really get how much money we're spending.

This gave me chills.

This is too cute to give me chills.

What do you think? Which is the more effective ad?


  1. I think the first ad is far more effective. I think most Americans really have a hard time putting figures like $3.6 trillion and $257 billion into perspective, because we don't deal with monetary amounts like that. This is great, because it is a graphical representation of the magnitude of spending that's being shoved down our throats.

    Thanks for finding this video!

  2. I tend to agree. Anything that helps people understand just how huge the numbers are that we're talking about will help.
