Cool Educational Money Tool

You’ve probably heard about the “Khan Academy“, a not-for-profit company started by Sal Khan that has over 2800 free educational videos online.

But did you know that the Khan Academy has videos now for more than just K-12 students?

They are beginning to cover much more college-level material and have sections now on the following finance and investing-related topics that you grasshoppers might find interesting:

  • Banking and Money
  • Credit Crisis
  • Currency
  • Current Economics
  • Finance
  • The Geithner Plan
  • Micro and Macroeconomics
  • The Paulson Bailout
  • Valuation and Investing
  • Venture Capital and Capital Markets

I haven’t reviewed too many of these videos yet so cannot vouch for whether I am aligned with their thinking or not, but on the surface it looks like a great place to get the basics!  (e.g. “American Put Options”, “The Yield Curve”, “EBITDA”, etc….)

Sal’s previous employer was a hedge fund and he has multiple degrees from MIT and Harvard…he’s certainly no slouch when it comes to math and money!

Check it out!

To your financial success,
