We're used to seeing financial related television delivered in a way that frankly, doesn't appeal to most viewers. Terms like 'rate of return' or 'beta' or 'compounding' just don't excite. That is, unless a hilarious comedian delivers them. John Oliver (comedian, former Daily Show correspondent, and host of Last Night Weekly ) did something important. He recorded some of the best television we've ever seen.
This must-watch, plain English (pun intended) explanation about the rigged state of the financial service industry hilariously outlines why you should care more about your money. You. The one reading this right now. It's a little long but well worth the time to watch. (warning - this video does contain some language)
