Links of the Day (April 9th, 2015)

It is always quite odd to see the New York Times post something that makes sense in their op-ed pages: The Real Reason College Tuition Costs So Much

For those of you keeping score at home, I, too, wrote about the ever increasing costs of higher education here.

EconStories, which produces and uploads videos about economics on its Youtube channel, has been uploading a series of fun videos called EconPop. These videos dissect movies to discuss economic issues. The latest video that they uploaded was a discussion of The Hudsucker Proxy where they talked about competition and the minimum wage. The link to that video can be found here.

EconStories were the same people who created the two amazing rap battle music videos that featured Friedrich A. Hayek and John Maynard Keynes. Check the videos, Fear the Boom and Bust and Fight of the Century.

And finally, here's a story about North Korean who defected to South Korea and then became a successful businessman.
