Explain Away

I've mentioned it here before, but it's worth repeating: If you're not listening to Planet Money, you're missing out.

The reporters translate complex macroeconomic concepts into meaningful and even entertaining broadcasts or podcasts a couple of times a week. I got at least a basic understanding of dense concepts like toxic assets and the health insurance market from this great team of journalists. And last week, they explained why gold is indeed our most "precious metal."

My friend, medical writer Jane Rollins, recently recommended this video that I also found excellent. It's part of a thesis project from a student at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Thanks, Jane!
