"Its the Economy, Stupid!" And Now It's Fun!

  • What do My Little Ponies, Neanderthals, foreign aid and the Pilobolus dance company have to do with each other?
  • Can you tell the difference between the Federal Reserve and Fresh Lemonade?
  • Are you terrified a prospective employer is going to talk way over your head about market economy, stuff you know you should know, but all you can think of is Shakespeare quotes?

Learn and have fun watching We The Economy, a series being compared to "Schoolhouse Rock."

Head to the website (or the iOS or Android apps, or Netflix, or YouTube… or just about any platform  you can think of that delivers movies). You’ll find a series of 20 short films (average 5 minutes), produced by an eclectic mix of Important People in the film industry, assembled by Morgan Spurlock (Academy Award nominee for the fast food documentary “Super Size Me”) and Paul G. Allen (Microsoft co-founder). In a radical departure from standard media distribution practices, the film package is being distributed free, across platforms and venues.

Free. And you don’t have to watch cheesy advertising to get at the funny, intelligent, entertaining content.

On the web, go to:, the home site.
