Econ4 Video Remix Contest

The contest’s theme was Greed.

Here’s what we wanted:

  1. Fun. Economics is stuffy enough as is, so make sure your video isn’t!

  2. Short. 3 minutes max.

  3. On Point. Videos should address the theme (“Greed”) but they should also contribute to a broader understanding of economics. Have a look at our mission statement and you’ll see what we mean.

Here’s what we got.
