Why One Minute Economics?

My name is Andrei Polgar and I consider economics waaaaaaay more than just a profession, it’s something that defines me and through which I’ve tried and am trying to make a difference!


Among other things, through my YouTube channel, One Minute Economics 🙂

It all started back in 2015, when I said to myself that it’s a shame how most people think economics goes over their heads… they believe it’s all just too darn complicated and end up looking the other way. Unfortunately, there is a price to pay for this because no matter how hard you try to hide, there’s no escaping economics in day-to-day life.

I ultimately decided to do something about it rather than complain, so I started brainstorming so as to figure out how economics can be made accessible. The “one minute economics” concept was thus born and the channel was nothing more than a hobby at first.

My initial goal revolved around maybe publishing a video every couple of months and only covering the absolute basics: deflation, inflation and so on. But as time passed, I noticed something interesting: I was no longer talking to myself and not only that but people actually liked the concept as well as delivery!

Fast-forward to the present and there are now more than 300 “timeless” economics lessons (let’s call them economics lessons without an expiration date, lessons which will be just as relevant 10 years from now as they are today) on the One Minute Economics YouTube channel… with many, many more on the way.

The channel enabled me to meet and keep in touch with a LOT of extremely bright individuals, it served as a modest launch pad for my first book (Wealth Management 2.0, the only personal finance book out there written specifically for those who make money online in one way or another, from freelancers to online entrepreneurs) and ultimately made it possible for me to hit the Wall Street Journal as well as USA Today bestseller lists with my second one (The Age of Anomaly, *the* book to read if you’re interested in learning about and preparing for a wide range of economic as well as financial calamities).

The rest, as they say, is history!
