Using the mathematical tools introduced by Pythagoras, Plato wrote his allegory of the City of Atlantis c. 360 BCE. Ernest McClain published his analysis in his book The Pythagorean Plato: Prelude to the Song Itself (Nicolas-Hays, 1978). John F. Sase developed the 3-D animation of the model in 2017. Theodore J. Sase rendered it in 2018.
Hello. I’m Dr. John Sase (www.saseassociates.com).
Welcome to Video Economist. Over the past 35 years of teaching Economics and Statistics, I have experimented with and developed a number of multimedia tools for the classroom including video clips from television and film, animated PowerPoint presentations and a History-Channel style of feature length documentary.
As I have taught Micro and Macro Principles, Intermediate/Managerial Econ, Statistics and Quantitative Management, Urban Economics and Real Estate, Economics of Law, Money and Banking, and other topics, I decided to re-cut and create new videos to include on this channel. I hope that you find many useful topics here. If you do, please Like, Subscribe, and Comment about topics you would like to watch.
I have assembled a playlist of short Economics videos (a couple of minutes each) that may work as classroom-discussion introductory talking points and stimuli-- Show a clip then launch into a class discussion. This first set includes Economic History, Economic and other Social Science thinkers from the 19th and 20th centuries, and tracking economic fluctuations over large periods of time such as the length of an empire. Most of the footage is fast moving images, both abstract as well as concrete. In a few, I, Dr. Sase do some of the narration on screen. In other segments, there is a variety of male and female voice-overs including some playing the roles of great thinkers of the past speaking their own words from well-known and less well-known works.
