I’m reading, researching, and assembling materials on the subprime mortgage market and the current credit crisis. The New York Times created a timeline on the unfolding crisis that includes articles, graphics, audio, and video. It starts with September 7 and is called “Five Weeks of Financial Turmoil”–a name that will, no doubt, change as the crisis continues. It calls to mind coverage of the 444 day U.S. hostage standoff in Iran from 1979-1981–“Hostage Crisis: Day 79 . . . . Hostage Crisis: Day 248.” A grim connection for a grim time.
