Hayek vs. Keynes

With a hat tip to Father Poeking on Twitter, I came across this fascinating video:

It’s a (scripted) rap battle and boxing match which is actually about the main economic arguments of Keynes and Hayek. A thing which is entertaining about economics is already a very rare beast, but one which has high production values and good acting is a bit like finding a two-headed unicorn.

Also interesting is that, as the thumbnail suggests, the rap battle is interspersed with a boxing match. There is the interesting detail that boxing has been called “the sweet science” while economics has been called “the dismal science”.

It’s very much worth watching; it’s entertaining and there’s a lot of attention to detail.
