I had absolutely no idea where to put this Thread, so mods move accordingly please.
I've recently been studying economics, not too in depth... but enough to get a general understanding.
One resource that I've found very helpful is Khan Academy, for those interested in a easily understood and informative means of grasping some key
concepts to economics, I highly suggest checking it out.
Anyways... back to why I chose to create this thread, I came across a fun, entertaining, and musical take on the whole thing.
I now present, Fight of the Century: Keynes vs. Hayek... This is kind of a 'rap battle' I suppose, but it's not... it's definitely worth checking out.
I hope I'm not the only one that finds this awesome!
Fight of the Century: Keynes vs. Hayek Round 2
I hope you enjoyed! There are other videos with these guys, I suggest checking them out.
Now... to the nitty gritty, the straight up dirt! This might seem corny to say... but if you 'care about America and it's future' you WILL watch this
video. It's a little long, but after the first 8 or so minutes there is never a dull moment!
The Curse of Alexander Hamilton | Jack Chambless
While I'm sitting here, posting youtube videos about economics... I suppose I will toss in two more of goodies.
The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of The World by Niall Ferguson Epsd. 1-5 (Full Documentary)
I know, I know! OMG 4 hours! This is a collection of 5 episodes, I suggest watching it in chunks... because it can become a little monotonous at time,
Now, here's a classic! It's a little 'old school', but it's worth the watch. There's some great history in 'The Ascent of Money', but this one hits
the nail right on the head!
The Secret of Oz - Winner, Best Docu of 2010 v.1.09.11
Anyways... I hope yall enjoy! If there are any other great documentaries, lectures, or videos about economics please share them!

For those that don't understand just what is so wrong with Obamacare, you will want to watch The Curse of Alexander Hamilton | Jack Chambless.
On a side note... people on ATS love to spew ignorant crap about governments, economics and freedom. It's no surprise that this thread has no stars,
flags or responses... although it hasn't been up very long. Maybe I should have just posted some usual crap rhetoric...
Debating on changing the thread title to 'Economics Will Kill You, Obama Hates, History of Money and Governance' lol.
