Watch: The Economic Rap Battle Of The Century

It may surprise you to hear that George Mason University economist and Planet Money friend, Russ Roberts, has been hard at work on a rap video, but it's true. Roberts and Spike TV producer/director and self described "amateur economic junkie" John Papola are making a music video about the competing business cycle theories of John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek. The video is still a work in progress but PBS Newshour has a nice preview. We look forward to seeing the finished product.
