    lol, gotta love the educational value for those who never, in their wildest dreams, would read about them.

    Too bad Minsky didn't make a cameo.

      Fantastic video. I myself have actually just started to read The Road to Serfdom by Hayek... maybe then that thread Fred made a few years back may start to make more sense.

        Fight of the Century: Keynes vs. Hayek Round Two (10min.)

        "Fight of the Century" is the new economics hip-hop music video by John Papola and Russ Roberts at

        According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the Great Recession ended almost two years ago, in the summer of 2009. Yet we're all uneasy. Job growth has been disappointing. The recovery seems fragile. Where should we head from here? Is that question even meaningful? Can the government steer the economy or have past attempts helped create the mess we're still in?

        In "Fight of the Century", Keynes and Hayek weigh in on these central questions. Do we need more government spending or less? What's the evidence that government spending promotes prosperity in troubled times? Can war or natural disasters paradoxically be good for an economy in a slump? Should more spending come from the top down or from the bottom up? What are the ultimate sources of prosperity?

        Keynes and Hayek never agreed on the answers to these questions and they still don't. Let's listen to the greats. See Keynes and Hayek throwing down in "Fight of the Century"!
