The El Dorado for auto-didacts
Salman Khan, a portfolio manager in California has created hundreds of free educational videos, available on his web site, the Khan Academy and on YouTube. These videos cover the basics of banking, finance and the current credit crisis — I saw a couple and they’re quite good.
Even more importantly, there are hundreds of videos on mathematics (algebra, calculus, trignometry, probability and more) and physics. Salman has three degrees from MIT and one from Harvard, so he knows what he’s talking about.
Anyone, anywhere in the world can benefit — all you need is access to the Internet. A good idea, fantastically implemented.
Thank you, Salman for investing all this time and energy.
