Basic economics in less than 20 minutes (3 videos)



My friend Tessa Sproule at Vubblepop sends out a daily email with a curated collection of videos she has found online. Yesterday's was particularly good with three video explainers that focused on basic economics; specifically the videos (two from the Rest of Us and one from Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell) focus on money (what it is and why we use it), trade and banking.

While the videos may not tell you anything you don't already know, chances are you know someone who needs them. Amid the rise of populism in the west I've heard a number of proposals designed to "fix the economy". However, some of those proposals (including some from people seeking public office) do not show the amount of economic knowledge conveyed in these three videos.

So enjoy and if you don't learn anything, please send these to where they are needed.
