Creating a simplified (as possible) understanding of the global banking system and the way economics work.

I'd love to hear a TED talk that explains the financial system in a way that is clear, concise and can be taught to a 6th grader. Maybe I'm reaching, but I don't mind :)

I think so many of my own struggles with finance stem from a lack of understanding the principles that found the system of monetary exchange the world operates on.

Informed people make better decisions. That's my theory. So, the idea I'm proposing is to seek out the person or team of individuals who could present the scenario of our economic system in a fun, simple, and relevant way using examples that we can all understand and relate to down to a Jr. High level, and then, to give us advice on ways we can fundamentally change our and our communities' economic health for the better, for the long run.
