I was browsing the web the other day for " Craig james _ chief Equities Economist " and came across this cool website that has some useful information and views from some popluar econimists and finance commentators / editors. I was impressed by the way the website ) www.rainmakeritv.com made these videos and presentations so easily available for the general public to watch. The are some good videos listed for finance related topics which i was interested in , but there are also other topics covered. They are all neatly listed in different channels and are quite fast to load as well. I liked the way they also have the option to download them to your computer as a pdf , in audio format or straight to your ipod.
The content covers each of the five channel on Rainmaker iTV:
- Channel One: Showtime
- Channel Two: Learning and Development
- Channel Three: Conferences and Seminars
- Channel Four: Industry Profiles
- Channel Five: Launch Pad
