Several of my youtube subscribers/viewers have asked about the "Capitalism/Socialism" speech I delivered several years back. They said it was private, but it seems to work for me. Regardless, the speech is probably some of my finer work and certainly one of the most comprehensive presentations/arguments I've ever put together, not to mention a ton of succinct economic data.
If you are new to economics and politics, not to mention, just looking for some clear empirical data and arguments about capitalism and socialism, this video series would be it. Will save you a ton of time and trouble trying to read a score of books. It is unfortunately spread across multiple videos, but you can click from one to the next.
