Tracking America’s Bank Failures

The Wall Street Journal has put together this very interesting map that tracks the nation’s bank failures since the start of the financial meltdown. The time-elapse map records 97 banks, savings banks, and thrift failures since the beginning of 2008 (click the picture to go to the map). Large circles, as noted by Andrew Garcia Philips and Damian Paletta who are the producers of this representation, indicate banks with more assets at time of failure.
