This episode of The Yard is called The Economy and that's exactly what it describes, albeit in a very unusual setting -- a elementary-age school yard. The brilliance of the premise is that the story is explained by the children. We hear how different groups of students interact and learn to use trading cards to buy special perks and goods. We also see how one group tries to game the system by creating a monopoly on the cards, which serve as the yard's currency. There are many economic themes throughout the episode and it is well worth watching all the way to the end.
