  • Demonstrate the functioning of markets with sound money versus unsound money as illustrated by the highly volatile cryptocurrency markets.

This video is available to view for EconEdLink members only.

Description

Explore how markets function and price signals work in the presence of market and government failure and investigate how individuals and societies are impacted differently in environments with and without sound money. Examples will illustrate the differences between the way consumers, producers, investors, and savers behave in environments supported by sound fiat money and those influenced by highly volatile cryptocurrencies.
