Every day, the Atlantic Business Channel tries to explain the world of money and economics in a way that's accurate enough to make both experts and novices nod along in understanding. We're always looking for ways to improve the way we do it in paragraphs. Now we're gonna try to do it in videos. And we need your help.
Starting today, we're taking your questions on all things economic and business-y and turning them into explainer videos. You can submit your own in the box below. We'll choose the smartest, the most entertaining, and the most peculiar questions. Then we'll answer them in videos that are (we hope) as smart, entertaining, and idiosyncratic as your queries.
Your inspiration can come from anywhere, including daily price mysteries (e.g.: If suits are cheaper than cars, how come it's so much cheaper to rent a car than a tux?) and big picture economic questions (e.g.: How do we measure unemployment, and how are we doing it wrong?).
Don't worry if you think your question is "too easy" or even "too hard." We want and expect a range. Just be yourselves -- curious and creative. And thanks!
