My own moment when I’m teaching about structural unemployment, I always use as an example the “typing pool” which has zero meaning to every student I teach. Even the words don’t quite fit themselves into a coherent phrase from which they can conjure up an actual productive activity. I actually tried to buy a cassette player not long ago and they are nowhere to be had, not even in an op shop. Time I threw out my cassettes, I guess, but they’ll only go after I first get rid of my records.
As for the video, I like the way that “Walkmans” in the title is followed by the words “Portable Cassette Players” in brackets so it’s not all that certain that everyone who even watches this will know what it is or how it works.
