Inflation beating cartoons

If only all economics could be taught this way. Imagine a world where financial economics, engineering, maths, etc could be taught to young people and kids alongside their favourite TV programs. Just imagine a maths cartoon after a dose of the Simpsons.
The European Central Bank, in cooperation with the national central banks of the euro area, has produced an informative cartoon titled "Price stability: why is it important for you?" for young teenagers and teachers in all the official languages of the European Union.

This tool consists of an eight-minute animated film featuring two secondary school pupils, Anna and Alex, finding out about price stability and learning about the "inflation monster".
