Text Version in case the audio has problems:

"You know, I'm going to share something that will completely change the way you think about Money. A long while ago, when I was a child, food was less abundant in Bulgaria, so I had an ingenious idea -that we would buy the least expensive food, which was beans at the time, costing about 60 cents a bag. Many other people thought this way, so we were able to feed ourselves. We made it. It took hours to cook and the stoves in Europe run on electricity instead of gas, so in reality it was the most expensive food. Bulgaria is not a very rich country, and a bit of backstory to this, I guess you could call it, that helps highlight the situation. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, many countries returned to Capitalism. Of course, when something is newer, people don't know how to think, because they aren't used to it, so any change is negative at first, especially an entire political system. For a while there were very few business owners, previously all businesses were Government owned, there were no rich people to make their own business, it was chaos. This lasted for a while, although I was born a bit later. Anyway, the last words I want to leave you with is that theres more factors to economics than just supply and demand, and you have to take all of them into account when making financial decisions. And the grand finale? -If everyone brought the cheapest healthy food available, no I don't mean chips and the like, then it would eventually become the most expensive food, and then move on to the next. So theres really a lot of things to think about from these examples."

edit: [Although, from experimentation, which I remembered recently, you can soak beans in water overnight and then they only take 30 minutes to cook, which is a small half hour.]
