    what happens to the cash when it is used to pay back loans?? does the bank keep that cash for itself??

    Start a business? work for someone who got a loan? … I people didn’t need banks, there wouldn’t be any

    Hmmmm …. How is a borrower considered an asset? I believe it is an educated gamble to believe I will get paid back the money I loaned out. It appears to be a system based on faith in getting a return

    They aren’t really using their equity, but rather other people’s money. Equity is a claim against assets; here that is initially the $1m building, then the $200k interest that came in for total $1.2m. Also, in the purest sense, the interest is payment for matching up people’s savings with borrowers and assuming all risks, as still owe savers their money + promised interest.

    This video is interesting because it helps to demonstrate how the rich get richer faster than the rest of us, as banks (for example) can make investments from their own equity without requiring a loan, i.e. no interest to deal with.

    I agree. It seems lame to use a computer to draw text by hand. Why not just type?

    Revenue is income, NET income is revenue (income stream) – expenses

    There videos are amazing. My econ teacher is terrible and I’ve been watching a lot of your videos to make up for his terrible lectures. You’re a much better prof 😉

  22. rfry Says:

    I love the rawness of the drawings… Its more about what your trying to explain then it is about the pretty pictures.

  23. brco2003 Says:

    Great vid., once again! Perhaps “Interest Revenue” would be a better term than “Interest Income”.

  24. VictimOfBoredom Says:
