This first installment in The Daily Beast "Op-Vid: Campaign 2012" series features Niall Ferguson on the economy.
What is an Op-Vid? Opinion, without the pundits yelling. Handmade animation, without the caricatures. Essays without the text. Complex topics, without the boring. Op-Video is a new platform that features writers, thinkers and doers that might otherwise contribute to an opinion page. In this series, we tackle the issues at the heart of the 2012 campaign.
