(Video link here.) Vicki Celestines, one of our readers, sent us this great compilation of “compelling TED Talks on Money.”  Together, the eleven videos make up a unique “crash course in economics and personal finance” which we can certainly use. They cover topics such as putting a value on nature; raising kids to be entrepreneurs; poverty, money, and love; and investing in a post-crash world.

Our hands-down favorite though is Matt Weinstein’s talk about “What Bernie Madoff Couldn’t Steal from Me.”

It puts the fear of loss in another light.
