Introduction to economics: my new video, out this morning

Posted on

The introductory video on economics is out on my YouTube channel this morning:

The big point is a simple one. If economics is about the allocation of scarce resources then we have t know what is scarce. And my point is a simple one. Economics has treated money and financial capital as scarce. But it isn't the real constraint in the economy. The planet is the real scarce resource - and so are we.

Economics has asked the wrong questions I hope to ask better ones.
