SYNOPSIS

EconPop takes a deep—yet funny—look at the economic themes running through classic films and shows such as GhostbustersThe Lego Movie, and House of Cards. The 12-video series injects wit and whimsy into the dismal science of economics, and the result is always entertaining, educational, and irreverent. 


 
 
 
If my [economics] professor had used pop-culture analogies, perhaps I would’ve retained some of the info. The clever web series EconPop is doing just that, and so far I think I’ve learned more than I did in school.
— Whitney Matheson, USA Today
