Something Wonderful: Hey, Party at the Fed. Get Down!

"In Fear the Boom and Bust, John Maynard Keynes and F. A. Hayek, two of the great economists of the 20th century, come back to life to attend an economics conference on the economic crisis. Before the conference begins, and at the insistence of Lord Keynes, they go out for a night on the town and sing about why there's a "boom and bust" cycle in modern economies and good reason to fear it."

I heard its debut on NPR on the drive home tonight. I like it, and I'm glad when it's over.

Did you know that one of the execs/producers of SpikeTV made this happen?

Marvelous stuff, can't wait for future ones. Clever as the rap is, the best part is the scene where Hayek checks into his hotel room, opens a desk drawer and instead of the Gideon Bible, finds a copy of Keynes's GENERAL THEORY.Perfect and deadly.
