Video and Audio from a public lecture given on 17 November 2015 at the LSE's Centre for Macroeconomics.
"Why did the size of the U.S. economy increase by 3 percent on one day in mid-2013—or Ghana's balloon by 60 percent overnight in 2010? Why did the U.K. financial industry show its fastest expansion ever at the end of 2008—just as the world's financial system went into meltdown? And why was Greece's chief statistician charged with treason in 2013 for apparently doing nothing more than trying to accurately report the size of his country's economy? The answers to all these questions lie in the way we define and measure national economies around the world: gross domestic product."
An 87-minute video from a public lecture given by Piketty at the London School of Economics and Political Science in June 2014.

Hundreds of videos (mostly in English, but some in Afrikaans) on economic principles. Some are in chalk-and-talk format, while others use narrated animation. They are organised by topic into playlists. The most popular videos are the Keynesian multiplier, the IS-LM model, and absolute and comparative advantage.
Published in 2013, this video uses narrated animation to explain practical lessons from economics as simply as possible. Some of the ideas are basic definitions, and some are proposals by the presenter, a successful investor. So the video discusses how a loan is a borrowing money from one's future self, how austerity drives down incomes, and how total spending involves both money and credit. The video has been endorsed by the Federal Reserve's Paul A. Volker, among others.

Part of the Nobel prize website, this page provides resources related to the 2008 winner Paul Krugman of Princeton University. It includes the video of his Nobel lecture - New trade, new geography and the troubles of manufacturing - that focuses on economic geography and trade, comcluding that: increasing returns have been a powerful force shaping the world economy, that force may actually be in decline, but that decline itself is a key to understanding much of what is happening in the world today. Users will need Windows Media Player or RealPlayer to view the lecture. The site also includes supporting materials, such as interviews, lecture slides and press releases.
This YouTube video features 2008 Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman of Princeton University, speaking as part of the Authors@Google series. Instead of speaking about his book The Conscience of a Liberal, Krugman talks about the financial crisis, banking meltdown and credit crunch - several months before it actually happened, as the talk took place on December 14, 2007. Krugman looks at the causes of the current crisis and then goes on to offer some possible ways out.

About two dozen short animated lectures and online slide shows for micro and macroeconomics. The slides are in a Flash format which does not allow editing, but allows readers to step through and recap. They use animation to build up graphs and show their interrelation.

10 lectures by US economists downloadable as streamed video or MP3 audio presentations, with accompanying PowerPoint slides and related papers that pursue the issues in more depth. Two lectures are on growth (Dean Baker, Mark Weisbrot), others on US labour markets (John Schmitt), women in the labour market (Heather Boushey), trade (Mark Weisbrot), intergenerational mobility and life chances (Heather Boushey), the Federal Reserve, asset bubbles and intellectual property (all Dean Baker). The lectures are US-focused and reflect the sometimes market-critical perspective of the Center for Economic Policy and Research, a think-tank founded by Baker and Weisbrot in 1999 with an advisory board including Joseph Stiglitz and Robert Solow (not to be confused with the UK-based Centre for Economic Policy Research).
