This 45 minute animated video is an allegory of the creation of money, and explains in clear detail how we went from a gold standard to our current system.


The first 21 minutes of this video also explains how our current system operates. You don't gain the context of gold banking, but it's incredibly concise.


This video moves beyond our current system and explains money from an informational and technological standpoint. This one will get you to think about the conceptual and abstract aspects of 'money'.


This movie explains the hidden allegory of the gold and silver standards within The Wizard of Oz, and also discusses a lot of historical aspects of money.

Seeing Rural America Through a Clearer Lens

In an interview with Shelterforce editor Miriam Axel-Lute, Jim King of FAHE in Appalachia and Bill Bynum of HOPE in the Mississippi Delta, two longtime LISC partners, discuss the challenge of persistent poverty in rural communities. Investing in rural areas—and dispelling stereotypes about them—they argue, is critical for the health of the entire country.

The Warmth of Family, the Taste of Mexico

We launch our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month this year with the story of the Villegas family, owners of Los Originales Tacos Árabes de Puebla in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Natives of Puebla, Mexico, Merced and Alfredo Villegas run one of the city’s most beloved food trucks, and are emblematic of Hispanic immigrants to the U.S. who have not only enriched the cultural, social—and culinary—terrain of this country, but stoke the economy through their energetic entrepreneurship, creativity and resilience.
