I've a degree in economics from UC, and still have the books from school on my shelf. I thought I would add my two cents.

This is so well done, it's stunning. It's a terrific introduction to the basic concepts of the market economy and presented in a very digestible, easy to listen-to form. Because it's easy to listen to and understand, the material is assimilated by the brain very well. So, even though there is no higher level math here, it's enough to get someone started in the field-- and a higher level course is useless if the viewer cannot understand the material, no matter how high quality the material may be. This video does so much with so little time. At least, it casts light on something that many would find hopelessly obscure.

Mr. Dalio hit this one out of the park.

In a Nutshell: credit should only be used for productive means (and maybe buy your house), never for consuming.

Anyone knows what metrics to look for finding out the “long term debt cycle״ and compare it to the GDP? Or in other worlds how can I create the graph in the summary to see where we are now?
