Interactive CDO map

Hey gang --

Just followed a link from Robb's Global Guerillas blog to this:

It's an interactive map (in the style of the Visual Dictionary, for those who've enjoyed that) diagramming the way CDOs link pretty much all the big banks together.  It really brought home for me that (a) this is a ridiculous way to run a global finance system, and (b) if one big player goes, seems like they all will.

Worth a few minutes (or more)...
