This financial crisis is doing for our financial knowledge what the primaries did for our civics knowledge (seriously, how many people out there knew the difference between a caucus and a primary twelve months ago?). It also means that we are traveling to new destinations on the Internet: regular readers know we often turn to Clusterstock, but today we also discovered Robert Lenzner‘s Street Talk at Forbes.com. To be sure, we are a long way from being able to explain what’s going on, or say, tell you exactly what a derivative is, but it’s a start. Also, we liked that Forbes.com included a quote along with the requisite ad page.
