The Economics of Seinfeld

Professors at Eastern Illinois University and Baker University have created courseware using clips from Seinfeld to reinforce economic concepts and theories.  Their Web site, The Economics of Seinfeld, cross-references clips from the episodes with important concepts related to the way Econ works.  (The references are time-marks on the DVD versions - similar versions could be found on Hulu, etc.) 

The web site could be a nice way to jazz up an Econ or Social Studies class at the high school level.  It's also offers teachers a new way to look at old favorites even if you don't teach HS Econ...

...Not that there's anything wrong with that...
