Throughout his three-decade career at the University of Waterloo, Larry Smith has inspired legions of students to take up the mantle of economics with his passionate and homespun tales of economic wizardry. In this excellent TED Talk from November 2011, Smith unpacks why people don’t go after the great career they think they want.

Killer quote: “It doesn’t matter how many times you download Steven J’s Stanford commencement address, you still look at it and decide not to do it.”
