Baseline Scenario, a site founded by three individuals. One is a professor at the London School of Economics, another was formerly the Chief Economist at the IMF, and the other is the co-founder of a software company. Together, they have created a website that gives a very basic overview of the Financial Crisis, providing context and easily digestible information. In addition, they are now a content partner with the NPR program Planet Money.
