Rainmaker Itv Finance Channels

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 ) 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.
