The Absurdity of It All

Economists often convey a problem with conveying their ideas to a general audience. In a very real sense, all economists are teachers running a class of students who don't want to be there, but are still paradoxically interested in understanding economics. (Or, more likely, want to talk so that they sound like they understand economics.)

Enter Yoram Bauman who translates Mankiw's ten principles of economics in a way everyone can enjoy. Well, I know economists will enjoy it, but I wonder what non-economists will say. (In the YouTube comments section, one person who was apparently studying for their econ final is "now confused.")
