Unit 2 Macro: Videos on Productivity

Here is a selection of short video clips that might be useful when teaching the economics of productivity as part of the AS macro course. I often start with the “Fast Hands” video clip (one minute only) because it raises all kinds of issues about division of labour and the quality of life of people who do these tasks. And the short 25 second clip on the world’s fastest hand is guaranteed to make a mark! If you have some other videos on productivity to share please leave a link in our comment slot at the bottom of the blog.
