The folks at econstories.tv are back with round two of their entertaining and informative rap battle between economists John Maynard Keynes and F. A. Hayek. Watch it below:
Victorino Matus spoke with one of the creators of the video series, George Mason University economics professor Russ Roberts, last year:
Originally Roberts had envisioned a sitcom in which Keynes came back from the dead as a struggling assistant professor "or maybe a high school economics teacher." He then scaled back this vision to the opening scene of the sitcom, complete with theme song and even a Mary Tyler Moore toss-your-hat-in-the-air moment. But what he ultimately ended up with was an ingenious video, with the help of John Papola, that has now gone viral.
