    AK - your videos are getting much, much better. Not so much of the goofy crap. Good for you. What this video, and I think the last one, did is explain in relatively simple terms, market information that is useful to a relative beginner. It is now the kind of thing I can recommend to young people or market-averse adults. Good work!

      The goofy stuff was a really nice add on, cracked me up a lot. „Cisco” joke still makes me laugh up to this day. Therefore with this video I’m kind of disappointed for the lack of humor AK used to provide. The original formula of short&funny piece will be ruined without the humor portion but I guess AK is adjusting to all those comments from people that take things a little bit too seriously.

    This video is over simplifying. Liquidity drives the asset prices - Sure, but what comes to interest rates, basically he's trying to explain us "The Fed Model" which total bs. Liquidity is much more complicated than a simple fed funds rate. The relationship between stocks and nominal interest rates is mostly random. Long term there is no correlation and the Fed model doesn't work. https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=381480 https://www.frbsf.org/economic-research/publications/economic-letter/2004/october/inflation-induced-valuation-errors-in-the-stock-market/#subhead2
