An amazing video. Fits wondefully into our newly resdesigned curriculum focused on developing critical thinking skills. Very beneficial in that it highlights a market system and details both its positive and negative outcomes. Wonderful for developing young citizens as they become a part of an American society!

Great vidoe as an introduction to the concepts of economics. Students are often overwhelmed with this content and your videos bring the ideas to life.
