The Road to Perdition

My previous post had me asking "How did we get here?" (Actually, I cleaned up my language for this post.) How did we end up on what could be an economic "road to perdition."

per·di·tion – noun
1. a state of final spiritual ruin; loss of the soul; damnation.
2. the future state of the wicked.
3. hell (def. 1).
4. utter destruction or ruin.
5. Obsolete. loss.

Since I’ve been trying to follow economic news for a while now, it occurred to me to create a timeline. After some searching and testing different web apps, I turned to Dipity to help me lay it all out.

It’s still a work in progress, of course — as events are still unfolding, and every item has its roots further back in history — but it’s helped me get my mind around what’s happened (and why). I offer it here in case it’s helpful to anyone else.

I’ll continue to update it as events warrant. (And it looks like they will….)
