Published in 2013, this video uses narrated animation to explain practical lessons from economics as simply as possible. Some of the ideas are basic definitions, and some are proposals by the presenter, a successful investor. So the video discusses how a loan is a borrowing money from one's future self, how austerity drives down incomes, and how total spending involves both money and credit. The video has been endorsed by the Federal Reserve's Paul A. Volker, among others.
