Most Americans vote against their financial self-interest, says Nikita Bier -- not because they prioritize social issues, but because there's a widespread ignorance of public policy. At TEDxBoston, he demos Outline, an interactive program which shows you how different policies would affect your personal finances. The app could very well change your next vote.

About TEDx
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
