    Talking Fight of the Century! Classic economists debate the economics of government spending through rap boxing match!

    Who do you think won?



    “Fight of the Century” Lyrics.
    Written by John Papola and Russ Roberts
    KEYNES
    Here we are… peace out! great recession
    thanks to me, as you see, we’re not in a depression
    Recovery, destiny if you follow my lesson
    Lord Keynes, here I come, line up for the procession
    HAYEK
    We brought out the shovels and we’re still in a ditch…
    And still digging. don’t you think that it’s time for a switch…
    From that hair of the dog. Friend, the party is over.
    The long run is here. It’s time to get sober!
    KEYNES
    Are you kidding? my cure works perfectly fine…
    have a look, the great recession ended back in ’09.
    I deserve credit. Things would have been worse
    All the estimates prove it—I’ll quote chapter and verse
    HAYEK
    Econometricians, they’re ever so pious
    Are they doing real science or confirming their bias?
    Their “Keynesian” models are tidy and neat
    But that top down approach is a fatal conceit
    REFRAIN
    Which way should we choose?
    more bottom up or more top down
    …the fight continues…
    Keynes and Hayek’s second round
    it’s time to weigh in…
    more from the top or from the ground
    …lets listen to the greats
    Keynes and Hayek throwing down

    The people lost.
    Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

    We are who we choose to be.
