I studied economics and never found it to be dismal. I even laughed at my professors’ econ jokes, which tells you most of what you need to know about how sad my college career was. But there’s a new YouTube series out that looks at how pop culture can help explain economics issues.
And it’s great.
Comedian Andrew Heaton launches this series with a look at crony capitalism (“Crony capitalism is regular capitalism’s in-bred cousin.”), entrepreneurship, charity and other economic themes that are on display in the award-winning Dallas Buyer’s Club.
