Be patient – this page takes a minute to load (we’re working on that).
This page contains links to the highly recommended videos and other resources for Lessons 1- 17 of The 21st Century Student’s Guide to Financial Literacy. A few of these are so useful, they deserve a spot at the top of your additional resource shortlist.
First up is Learning Markets. This site gets an A+ with over 100 short videos about all things financial. Keep in mind The Consumer Electronics Show is a constant source of excellent videos featuring the very latest in tech and other innovations. Bloomberg West has excellent videos on the latest tech news and interviews featuring a variety of interesting and inspiring Silicon Valley personalities. Finally, there’s no link here to PBS’ 4 hour/4part PBS series on Niall Ferguson’s The Ascent of Money, but it can be accessed through You Tube and PBS. It is highly recommended for in-class or assigned home-viewing.
