“Fear the Boom and Bust” Hayek vs. Keynes rap video

I recently became aware of a very clever video production which compares and contrasts the ideas of two “famous” dead economists, John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich von Hayek (hat tip to my UGA colleague Jim Hilliard).  The video, embedded below, is from the Econstories website.  This website bills itself as “…a place to learn about the economic way of thinking through the eyes of creative director John Papola and creative economist Russ Roberts”. 

I also highly recommend Russ Robert’s Econtalk website, which provides an ongoing set of podcasts featuring (see http://www.econlib.org/library/About.html#econtalk) “…one-on-one discussions with an eclectic mix of authors, professors, Nobel Laureates, entrepreneurs, leaders of charities and businesses, and people on the street. The emphases are on using topical books and the news to illustrate economic principles. Exploring how economics emerges in practice is a primary theme.”
