Economics Videos from Marketplace

Paddy Hirsch the senior editor at American Public Media’s Marketplace radio program has produced a number of delightful videos on economic matters.  The videos are witty, accessible but also well-informed – ideal for a senior high school or undergrad class and also a great place to crib notes if you want to explain to people what is going on when they ask you at parties (Yes, this does happen to me but admittedly I may go to different parties than you.)  Here are a few of my favorites.

Thanks to Robby Thompson for the link.

Actually, at the parties I attend everyone asks, “What does Tabarrok think about this?”

I love Marketplace and it’s definitely one of the best business shows out there, but I often wish they didn’t rely so heavily on Keynesian skewed commentary.
