TED-Ed’s new lesson and video seems to me does a decent job of explaining – simplistically – how the stock market works…until the last few seconds.

Listen, I’m invested in the stock market, too, but I don’t have the naive view that I have the same access to it, and to related information, as the one percent.

But, if I was teaching an Economics class, I’d either play it up to that point or use the ending as an opportunity for critical thinking….
