Economics made simple

What happens when a Spike TV producer and an economics professor get together?

This entertaining – and informative – video explains the two major theories of modern economics.

One, Keynesian, says when you run into trouble, print more money. The other position, Austrian, championed by Friedrich Hayek, says “not so fast.”

I live as if the Austrians are right and, if you ask me, I recommend that you do too.

No answers, but it’s good to know the questions.

P.S. Today (January 31, 2009) is the last day for the early bird tuition special for System Seminar 2010.

I’m the only person – in the world – who’s taught practical online marketing before the boom…during the dotcom boom…during the dotcom crash…during the Bubble of the 2000s…and during the present crisis. Sixteen years in all.

I always bake economic reality and sobriety into every course.

Could be why our enrollment is way up this year over last while the rest of the so-called competition is fading.
