Economics is Fun- Value

“What can be added to the happiness of a man who is in health, out of debt, and has a clear conscience?”Adam Smith

Dr. Madsen Pirie is an author and founder of the Adam Smith Institute.  The institute has put together a series of videos to explain the ideas and topics of economics.  I am sure you will agree that Pirie is quite entertaining.

Let’s watch and find out.
