At a dinner party last weekend, conversation turned to the 2008 recession and where we are today.  When I mentioned the world was in worse shape financially now than in 2008, a couple of the guests asked how I could say that.  I replied they would have to look at the data.  Economist Steve Keen does precisely that in this recent 30 minute presentation at the European Parliament.
