John Papola and I will be hosting a conference call for supporters of the Keynes-Hayek rap video next Tuesday, April 5th at 4:00 pm, eastern time. We will talk about the project, play some of the new song and take your questions. Anyone who makes a gift of $25 or more before Monday April 4 will get a confirmation and information about how to call in. The call will go for about 30 minutes. You can donate here.

Of course it is supposed to be simple, but the video is showing a very inaccurate caricature version of keynes.
i’ll bet the new video is again all about how keynes said that spending=wealth.

well, there’s a lot more to him than that. a lot

Happy to learn more about Keynes any time. And I’m eager to find a modern Keynesian who doesn’t advocate more spending during recession or high unemployment.

I agree. There’s a lot more to Keynes than that – just not a lot more to Keynes as an economist.

Correct, e.g., Keynes was a statistician by actual trade, who liked to put things like aggregate demand into shiny, metal boxes which can easily be measured and therefore predicted.

I’m eagerly awaiting 50Cent’s backbeat rhyme of “heteroskedasticity”

Can’t wait for the new video. I already donated, but I don’t want to spoil the surprise. How about printing up some Hayek vs Keynes T-shirts – you could have Team – Hayek or Team – Keynes. I think they would compliment my growing wardrobe of Austrian economist apparel from Mises.org.

It ain’t just the rappers who love FAH:
