About

This video is making its way through the public school system back in North America. A fascinating and educational look at our obsession with "stuff". Lots of great content for lessons in this !

Your numbers on the percentage of Military spending of the government are wrong.
Comment by Ellen Pham on October 28, 2009 at 9:01am
I think the confusion lies in the difference between the percentage of tax dollars spent on the military/defense spending (the figure used in the video, estimates seem to vary between 42% and 54%) and the percentage of Gross National Product, which is much smaller- 5.7% of GNP in 2005.

GNP is defined as the value of all the goods and services produced in an economy, plus the value of the goods and services imported, less the goods and services exported.

Intelligent video...we should at least have a basic understanding of our actions and the hidden consequences of those actions.

I'm looking forward to watching the Class Project tomorrow... have to take my viewing in chunks, or I stop paying attention : )
