Morgan Spurlock and others

A series of 21 short films, made by noted film directors, actors and comedians, to illustrate how economics applies to everyday life. The films are in a variety of different styles, using animation, comedy, parody or even choreography. The project was led by Morgan Spurlock, the director of "Super Size Me", and includes "Anchorman" writer Adam McKay, "American Psycho" director Mary Harron, and filmmaker/documentarian Werner Herzog. A team of economics experts selected the topics and advised on content.

The films, varying from five to nine minutes' length, are in five "chapters": What is the Economy? What is Money? What is the role of our Government? What is Globalization? and What causes Inequality? Some content and descriptions reflect the US origin of the material.
