Economist Ha-Joon Chang dispels the myth that economics is an esoteric discipline. His engaging talk, accompanied by the RSA Animate’s lively drawings, will captivate even those who detest the dismal science. Chang deftly demystifies economics and encourages everyone to be curious and to form opinions about economic policy. getAbstract recommends Chang’s unpretentious oration to those unacquainted with the field, yet even economics mavens will want to watch this pithy video to see how Chang makes the topic so accessible.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why everyone should have an opinion on economics,
- Why you need to understand multiple economic theories to benefit from a robust comprehension of the field and
- Why changing the status quo is hard.
