Ted has some interesting lectures and videos. The speakers are scholars, respected business leaders, and people who are active in the world of non profits. I am sure their are conservative Republicans active in the non profit world I personally do not know of any. Republicans normally donate money and little else.

I have quoted Niall Fergusson in the past on this board. His historic works are well received and well documented. I think it is interesting that if you are able to read, write, or listen to someone speak more than a few seconds you are suddenly caste among the learned in this country. We am stupit.

His lecture takes a few minutes but it's entertaining. He explains a lot of the history and might give you a tangential understanding about why Gold is what it is.
