    In which Adriene and Jacob teach you about how and why prices rise. Sometimes prices rise as a result of inflation, which is a pretty normal thing for economies to do. We'll talk about how across the board prices rise over time, and how economists track inflation. Bubbles are a pretty normal thing for humans to do. One item, like tulips or beanie babies or houses or tech startups experience a rapid rise in prices. This is often accompanied by speculation, a bunch of outrageous profits, and then a nasty crash when the bubble bursts. People get excited about rising prices, and next thing you know, people are trading their life savings for a tulip bulb. Crash Course is on Patreon!

  • The Geo-Graphics Mini Mac Index Deep Fries The Economist's Big Mac Index

    The Economist magazine’s famous Big Mac Index uses the price of McDonald’s Big Macs around the world, expressed in a common currency (U.S. dollars), to estimate the extent to which currencies are over- or under-valued. But you can’t buy a cheap burger in Beijing and eat it in New York, so it's less likely that global burger prices would converge. That's why Benn Steil, Senior Fellow and Director of International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations, created the Mini Mac Index, which compares the price of iPad minis across countries. iPad minis are a global product that, unlike Big Macs, can move quickly and cheaply around the world, which helps equalize prices.

A lot of wealth is gone, and there is no reason for it to come back. That was the summation of Robert C. Merton, one of three Nobel Prizewinning economists who joined intellectual forces last week at the School of Managements three-day Future of Life Cycle Saving and Investing Conference. Merton, along with Robert Solow and Paul Samuelson, took questions about the impending retirement savings crisis from PBS NewsHour correspondent Paul Solman at an October 23 after-dinner panel discussion, What Retirement Means to Me, that will be aired in part on the public television program. I believe this is a permanent decline, said Merton. I do not think this is a liquidity event. He told the audience, which included faculty from business schools around the world, that $4 trillion has been lost in real estate, and another $8 trillion to $9 trillion has been lost in the stock market. Asked by Solman if the current down market makes this a good time to invest, Samuelson, perhaps the preeminent American economist of the 20th century and the sole winner of the 1970 Nobel, expressed uncertainty. History teaches no lessons, he said. You dont know when to get back in. Speaking to a packed house in SMGs fourth-floor dining room, the Nobel laureates several times digressed with teasing banter. Asked when he planned to retire, the 93-year-old Samuelson explained that he would have to grow up before he considered retirement. Solow, who at 84 is the Foundation Fellow at the Russell Sage Foundation (where he succeeded Mertons father, sociologist Robert K. Merton), said he believed that he had retired several years earlier when he gave up his teaching salary at MIT. Both Samuelson and Solow taught economics for many years at MIT; Merton is the John and Natty McArthur University Professor at Harvard Business School. When Solman questioned the experts about the distribution of their own investments, they returned some surprising answers. Solow, who won the Nobel in 1987, said he had no idea what was in his portfolio. I just never paid any attention, he said. Thats because I dont care. And Im lucky to have a wife who doesnt care. Merton described his portfolio as almost perfect — you just have to get short. The Harvard economist, who won the Nobel Prize in economics in 1997 for his study of stock options, later revealed that the bulk of his portfolio was in a Global Index Fund, Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities, and one hedge fund. He said he had been invested in a commercial real estate fund until recently, but dropped that when its value rose too quickly for his comfort. Searching for a more optimistic note, Merton pointed out that most people are still living in the houses theyve been used to living in. But, he reminded the audience, the value of those houses is considerably less than it used to be. In the coming years, he said, the people who will fare best are those who enjoy their work. If you happen to be doing what you like, he said, thats a pretty good deal. Asked what advice he had for young people today, Solow offered three short words: Earn and save.

In which Adriene and Jacob teach you about how and why prices rise. Sometimes prices rise as a result of inflation, which is a pretty normal thing for economies to do. We'll talk about how across the board prices rise over time, and how economists track inflation. Bubbles are a pretty normal thing for humans to do. One item, like tulips or beanie babies or houses or tech startups experience a rapid rise in prices. This is often accompanied by speculation, a bunch of outrageous profits, and then a nasty crash when the bubble bursts. People get excited about rising prices, and next thing you know, people are trading their life savings for a tulip bulb. Crash Course is on Patreon!

Advanced automation can mean better, more meaningful jobs for humans. But even countries most ready for the future of work must rethink education and training to prepare people for the jobs of tomorrow, a new study finds. The report "The Automation Readiness Index (ARI): Who Is Ready for the Coming Wave of Innovation?" finds that even the best-prepared countries must develop even more effective education policies and training programs, as well as place a new emphasis on continual learning over the course of a career.

The Economist magazine’s famous Big Mac Index uses the price of McDonald’s Big Macs around the world, expressed in a common currency (U.S. dollars), to estimate the extent to which currencies are over- or under-valued. But you can’t buy a cheap burger in Beijing and eat it in New York, so it's less likely that global burger prices would converge. That's why Benn Steil, Senior Fellow and Director of International Economics at the Council on Foreign Relations, created the Mini Mac Index, which compares the price of iPad minis across countries. iPad minis are a global product that, unlike Big Macs, can move quickly and cheaply around the world, which helps equalize prices.
