Mark Twain once said that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through the day with the satisfaction of knowing that that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen to you all day long.

We The Economy is a series of 20 short films which you can watch online. The films look at economics in general and the US economy in particular, and try to answer these questions:

What is globalization?
What causes inequality?
Told through animation, comedy, musical, non-fiction, and scripted films, WE THE ECONOMY seeks to demystify a complicated topic while empowering the public to take control of their own economic futures.
