20 Stylish Videos explain Economics, Taxes, Recessions & more

We talk a lot about the economy.

But explaining it clearly to non-finance folk can be difficult, and it’s nearly impossible to make the conversation interesting. Until now.

Meet ‘WeTheEconomy’.

Leading economic experts decided to tackle 20 essential questions about the U.S. economy in a brand new way. Teaming up with award-winning directors, they produced a thought-provoking short film series to educate people about important (but sometimes dry) topics through comedy, animation, and scripted films.

Below are four of the WeTheEconomy videos. You can easily share them via an email campaign, or embed the videos right on your site or blog. Go ahead. It’s never been easier to educate clients (and their families) with style.
