Excellent article today from Mike Shedlock on S&L Crisis vs. Current Crisis.
While we will not know the final damage and economic cost of the 2000's credit crisis until a few years hence, it is helpful to be mindful of other incidents that were similar in history and try to compare their relative scope and magnitude to our present facts:

Interesting data. Worth the read.
