We page through New Yorker cartoons featuring bankers on ledges, Humpty Dumpty sitting on a Wall Street sign and a father laying off his wife and kids with New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff.
Before he was editor, Mankoff worked as a cartoonist for the New Yorker for 20 years.
He says that "tragedy plus time equals comedy."
Mankoff has compiled the new book "On the Money: The Economy in Cartoons 1925-2009."
