Stocks or bonds

The CBS Fast Draw team Josh Landis and Mitch Butler have created a simple scenario to describe the differences between stocks (acciones, valores) and bonds (bonos, obligaciones).

Most people have great difficulties to come to terms with this economic jargon, so perhaps the Fast Draw team's idea to explain stocks and bonds through a fable may come in handy for us to get clearer concepts.

Self-study activity:
Watch the video and see if, afterwards, you can manage to explain the difference between stocks and bonds in your own words.

You can read a transcript of the video here.
