Some people might say that rap battles between dead economists are unimportant. Those people are wrong, because the Keynes vs. Hayek rap battles are the most wonderful videos ever posted on the Internet. I would go so far as to argue that videos like this are the defining reason for the existence of the Internet in the first place. They are why Al Gore learned how to splice cable while Bill Clinton was nailing his was through the White House steno pool.

Now, each of these videos has apparently been online for several years. Those timestamps are clearly lies because I refuse to believe that they’ve existed this long and no one has told me about them. Because then I’d have to start burning homes down, and we don’t want that. Unless we believe that doing so would stimulate the economy by creating a jobs for firemen and home builders. But that’s just fallacious thinking.

I’ll let the gentlemen explain:

I feel entertained and educated.
