Economics of a Cupcake Factory

My younger sister is using it to learn algebra. My father uses it to explain the stimulus package and now I use it to supplement my Budgeting and Finance course at Hopkins. What is it? It's Khan Academy, a free library of tutorials explaining binomials to biology to banking in one central website. Salman Khan, the voice behind the magic pen, has earned the title "Bill Gate's favorite teacher" and as an introduction I have chosen to post the "Economics of a Cupcake Factory". The series covers the fundamentals of starting and running a product based business and may help supplement some of our Budgeting and Finance lectures before the midterm.
