Well, it’s like a lot of things, according to some of the economists, journalists, bankers and officials we interviewed for our four-hour series on the global financial crisis, Money, Power and Wall Street.

After hearing a number of different metaphors, FRONTLINE editors Ben Gold and Jim Ferguson got creative and made this compilation. What’s your favorite? Do you have a better analogy? Let us know in the comments.
