Rap Battle extraordinary

But not the kind you’re used to – if you’re used to any kind at all, that is.

Here’s “Fear the Boom and the Bust,” a rap battle featuring dueling impersonations of John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich August von Hayek (Personal note: Read F.A. Hayek’s The Road To Serfdom, it’s heavy but it’ll blow you away). 

Everybody appearing in the video is a professional political scientist or economist. The limo driver, whom we see briefly, actually serves as a department chair at Duke University. (or something along those lines – he sat on one of my professor’s dissertation committees back in the day).

All in all, pretty good. I think they gave a fairly decent presentation of both viewpoints.
