News: Hans Rosling, talented data educator has died at age 68. Presenter of 10 TED talks, and developer of gapminder.org for understanding data around the world; he will be missed. Link to my tribute video.
BurkeyAcademy is a site where we take HARD subjects and explain them in a way that you can understand. I provide worksheets, computer code, and try to use Open Source software wherever possible (e.g. R, MapWindow, Maxima). It is linked to a YouTube Channel with 300 videos on Economics, Econometrics, and Computing. We take requests, but NEVER do your homework for you.
Most of my videos are divided into one of the four categories below.

My Game Theory Book came out recently and is doing well, thank you for your support! ! Check out GameTheory.burkeyacademy.com for more information, and a free sample chapter.
Economics from xkcd:
Please take the Poll! New Question: What topics do you want me to cover next? I have to say, Macroeconomics is not my thing, but I do have a few videos on Macro at the bottom of this page. For Macroeconomic Videos, and some stats and labor econ, check out my buddy at the "Snarr Institute". Imitation is the sincerest form of Flattery! (He imitated ME, and I imitated Khanacademy!)
Old Poll: Regarding accepting Google Ads:The vote was 12 for, 6 against, and one "it depends on what they are offering". People gave compelling reasons on both sides! See my "News and Views" section below for a little more info, and my thinking on the subject.
Comment on Video Below: In this video I suggest that the largest denomination bill ever printed was Zimbabwe's 100 Trillion. I was off by a long shot! Below is Hungary's 1946 1 sextillion Pengo note: or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Pengo! There is just a "1 Milliard" on the face, but upon closer inspection says "Milliard B. Pengo", translating to a Billion Trillion in their number naming system. I think there is also a very large Swiss note over 100 Trillion... trying to track it down.

*FILE* Means that there is an associated file located under "Files" in the left sidebar. If there isn't a name of the file listed, it will be the same as the video name (or obvious). If you see me use an Excel file, notes (bullet points or definitions), a data set or Maple file, or anything else that you would find useful that is not available, please let me know
