Subjects include subjective value, Karl Marx's Labor Theory of Value, and opportunity cost. EconPop is the YouTube series that sifts through the haystack of popular culture to find the needle of economics within... and then stabs you with it! Starring comedian Andrew Heaton, EconPop takes a surprisingly deep look at the economic themes running through classic films, new releases, tv shows and more from the best of pop culture and entertainment. Heaton brings a unique mix of dry wit and whimsy to bear on the dismal science of economics and the result is always entertaining, educational and irreverent. It's Econ 101 meets At The Movies, with a dash of Monty Python. A Production of http://emergentorder.com Produced in Association with The Moving Picture Institute. http://thempi.org
