Everyone has a stake (literally and figuratively) in the financial crisis. Not everyone has an educational or life background that is compatible with recognizing capital markets problems and evaluating prospective remedies.

The stick-figure CDO primer is the best thing I've seen that appeals to a macro audience:

But it looks like Michael Moore recognizes the opportunity. He's been emailing lots of current and former traders and bankers, asking for help. Maybe the relative willingness (or unwillingness) of respondents to come forward to give their insight (or get railroaded) will have impact what he creates. Maybe it won't.

i found the article linked below to be very illuminating. the writer is infamous for penning a book called liar's poker which he intended to be a message in the bottle about the absurd fraud of "the willingness of a Wall Street investment bank to pay (him), hundreds of thousands of dollars to dispense investment advice to grownups". the best writers often give a vocabulary to the dissonance felt when we hear a mystical explanation for obvious swindle.
