Insightful charts of the crisis

There has been lots of conversation about the disaster of financial markets over the last year, but not many placed to go to find the whole thing mapped out clearly. 

The BBC has quite a good site that monitors the key events and the Credit Writedown is doing a good job of monitoring the bank write-offs so far, but really mapping the whole thing out?

Well, there is one place you can go to get a true view of the whole thing.

The Federal Reserve.

Guess what?

They've got two documents with web links for every event that maps out the whole crisis from start to finish now.

One document charts the US market issues.  For example, here's last September-November (doubleclick to see in large screen view):

USA triggers 

A second document charts the international actions.  For example, here's November 2008 through March 2009:

International responses

Boy, these charts are busy aren't they?

Luckily, the more recent ones seem to be quieting down a bit.  Let's hope it stays that way.

The charts are updated on the first of each month and are worth tracking.
