Video: Stock Markets in Plain English

Today we've published a new video: Stock Markets in Plain English

This video is one of our most requested and focuses on a few basic ideas:

  • Why companies offer their stock to the public
  • Why people buy and sell stocks
  • What makes stock prices change
  • How we measure stock markets using indices

This video is part of our Money series and one of the first to touch on markets.  It was also one of the toughest to make. Economic forces like supply and demand can quickly turn into rabbit holes. Keeping it short and sweet was a challenge. We're so excited to share it with the world.

We expect this video to be useful to teachers, but also organizations related to investing, particularly ones focused on educating those new to the market.
