Khan Academy Video Course: Current Economics
10 Installments—Entirely free
The economy has a real and sometimes painful impact on everyone. Yet the traditional study of economics doesn't always help illuminate the ways it works in real life. The Khan Academy created a course designed to address that exact problem: Current Economics is a short, 10-lesson video course that uses real-life examples, from a cupcake store to Obama's stimulus plan to unemployement, to show how economics really works. And as we all know, understanding the economy has never been more important.
Note that given the length of these lessons, you may want to adjust your settings to receive one or two lessons a week.
