Videos: All About Competitive Markets…

As spring semester begins, I am working on getting the mileage about of my shiny new HD camcorder and studio lights. This should improve video quality/sound dramatically as soon as I can figure out how to not make all of the technical mistakes that I’ve gotten so good at. I’m going to work on a combination of putting up new content and redoing old content that is subpar, and here are some examples of the former. (The first video is not in HD, and the middle ones are overexposed, but I think I sort of got it right by the last one, right? Right?)

Anyway, this is probably more than you ever wanted to know about production and supply in competitive markets:

I am working on revamping the Econ 101 page here, but, in the meantime, you can see the overall EDIWM YouTube channel here.

    Sweet! I am a big believer in not sweating the details in YouTube videos too much, but these definitely look better. It’s one thing not to sweat the details and another for everything to be kinda greyed out and distracting.

    It looks like you have some light on you and some light on the board, which (based on a long ago conversation with a gaffer friend of mine) seems like the right way to go. Sweet!

    As a person who has benefited from your videos (tho I have not watched even close to all of them), my next question is: why don’t you joke around in your videos like you do in your blog?

    Might I offer a constructive critique? As I watched these, I found myself mesmerized by your left hand. What’s it doing out there, palm up? And now it’s back. And out again. And back. Soon I realized I had no clue what you were talking about because I was paying more attention to your hand than the your words.

    So… stop doing whatever it is you’re doing with your left hand. Unless you are actually pointing at something on the board or making a visual reference (e.g., “When prices are up here [raise hand up high]…”), it is better simply to stand still, hands at your side or loosely clasped in front of you. It feels awkward at first, but it’s less distracting.

    Love your videos! Thanks for all the hard work you put into smartening us up.
