Description

Ever shaken an invisible hand? Been flattened by a falling market? Or wondered what took the bend out of Phillips' curve? David Mitchell helps reveal some of the great dilemmas faced by governments trying to run an economy - whether to save or spend, control inflation, regulate trade, fix exchange rates, or just leave everyone to get on with it and not intervene. You'll learn why Adam Smith put such a high price on free markets, how Keynes found a bold new way to reduce unemployment, and what economists went on to discover about the impact of policy on people's and businesses' behaviour - which may not always be entirely rational...

Customer Reviews

Amusing, yet informative

Having been through a college economics course, I can say that this video series tends to hit the high points of economics, yet still manages to be highly amusing. Keep it up:)

Keeps it simple and fun

I like the simplicity of something so complex. Thanks.

Awesome awesome awesome!

Economics is fun and these short cartoon clips are quick and to the point but also funny and entertaining. You can definitely learn from this!
