Great video. Perfect for explaining the market system.
This explains how and why the free market works, without a lot of technical jargon. We have been remiss in teaching the value of free market economics to a nation that was founded on these principles. We will surely lose our economic advantage if we no longer value our free market system. We need more materials like this.

Excellent video! My students found it understandable and interesting. Used it in conjuction with a discussion of Free Market Economy and Mercantilism.
I have used this video for several years now and still think it is very effective in communicating several basic economic concepts. With so many politicians claiming that the U.S. should be energy-independent, this video shows that we cannot even be pencil-independent!
My kids were thrilled that the video was on their level of learning and enjoyed it. Our classroom discussion was on a higher level than with any other video.
