Macroeconomics: The Big Picture

How did our system come to be? How is it organized? The economy is made up of the sum of the trillions of economic transactions that take place everyday. To the extent that we are either producers or consumers (or both), each of us is part of the economy. Our system organizes the economic activities toward the goal of maximizing the general welfare- our standard of living, producing more "stuff" we need or want, providing employment, and income for everyone. Understanding how economy works is simplified in this entertaining 25-minute videotape as we take a look at how the system was created by man and is controlled by man.
