Video: The Compound Interest Formula – A Rainbow Bridge

In my ongoing, epic, lonely, quest to convince an indifferent world that the compound interest formula will  clothe the downtrodden, feed the grey whales, prevent the coughing sickness and otherwise save the planet, I offer this video explanation for what the compound interest formula does.

 
 

I’m teaching personal finance to college kids this semester, so I plan to offer these video snippets on a  semi-regular basis.  I’m still new to video, so (gentle) criticism, (thoughtful) suggestions, and (full-throated) praise are all welcome!
