The Recession in 2008


This cartoon is by Cameron Cardow of Cananda.

This cartoon is pretty start forward, and we are already in the middle of the Market Crisis Storm. 

The perspectives:

1. A lot of houses, buildings, jobs and money will be loss. (Just like after a destructive tornado)

2. There is no where to hide. (Super Size tornado) 

3.  Global Crisis. (The globe)

4. Outlook of the market is gloomy. (dark shades and gloomy)

Buying a House


This cartoon was drawn by RJ Matson in 2007.

The different perspectives:

1. The beginning of the financial crisis started when people started buying houses through subprime mortgages.

2. The whole economy is about to topple over.

3. No.1 Culprit is the Mortgage Brokers (who wanted the sales).

4. The banks and appraisers fooled the wallstreet, securities and hedge funds companies by issuing good graded bonds using the lousy subprime assets.

Leave me a comment, let me know what you think.

The Rescue Plan



An interesting cartoon by Bennett.

The different perspectives:

1. The government is saving the banks and ignoring the ordinary people at the street.

2. Banks are rescued but what about the housing market?

3. The government is over "bailing" the banks. (4 firemen)

4. They are using the resources of the people at the street to rescue companies that failed to plan. (Using the water hydrants at the streets instead of the bank)

Let me know what do you see, please leave me a comment.

Taxpayer



[Source]

An interesting cartoon by Michael Ramirez.

The different perspectives:

1. Banks are saved at the expense of the taxpayer.

2. The taxpayer was not given a choice. (When the banker jumped, the taxpayer did not know and did not have a choice to escape)

3. Taxpayer saves the banks, but what did the banks do in return? (The banker did not even bother helping the taxpayer he landed on)

Let me know what do you see, please leave me a comment.
