The Collapse of the American Dream Explained in Animation

A video to watch

Jonathan Asphaug, Journalist and Opinionated writer

Check out this video if you have around 45 minutes to kill. This video explains something that many young Americans do not know: How the bank system works. Not what is taught in basic economics, but what is generally kept out of the classroom. It is a nice piece of animated comedy, and gets a complex message through, using easy to understand and actually pretty funny visuals and plot. When Kale’s dream home, and dog get taken from him by the bank after he bought them on a loan, his friend from fourth grade comes in the famous delorean from Back to the Future to help him get his American dream back. He shows Kale the history of the banking system, how it works, and what dark secrets lurk behind the currency system we use today.
