Clips from the US version of the comedy series "The Office" are used to illustrate economic concepts. The often poor decisions made by characters are shown as examples of how not to think about economics. The clips are indexed by season, by episode name, by character and by clip length. Most of the clips are under four minutes in length, with many under one minute. Each clip is tagged with relevant economic concepts and has a one-paragraph explanation of the action and its relevance to economics.
