[Xmca-l] Re: Fwd: Oscar winner¹s film features Khan Academy in the classroom this Friday on CBS

Hi -- Greg and others; this is curious. The video that my students were
passing around was actually a cartoon, produced by Kahnacademy. It was
about the Federal Reserve. While it began with a fairly reasonable
explanation of what the Federal Reserve does, it shifted after a while
into a kind of Elders of Zion-type conspiracy. I am trying to find it. It
doesn't come up on google. What I am getting out of a search for "Kahn
Academn" and "federal reserve' is a lot of lectures with graphs drawn in
colored lines against black.
