Awesome educational video - inflation mathematicsSubmitted by WildSatchmo on Tue, 09/13/2011 - 17:29
I saw this video (all 8 parts) over the weekend and it was pretty mind blowing and yet very simple. It is focused on basic arithmetic in relation to growth percentages (such as how we measure inflation).
It points out how huge of an impact when will see when the numbers seem very small (like 3% per year for example).
It also addresses natural resource consumption (specifically oil) and some other political topics, but the focus is the math and the facts.
I can't express how awesome this was.
