Fight of the Century

Chris Farrell Apr 28, 2011

Legendary economists John Maynard Keynes and F. A. Hayek “debate” public policy in rap. Yea, rap. The topic: Can the government steer the economy out of recession and back to health or have past attempts to shore up the economy perversely created the mess we’re still in today. It’s a throwdown or “Fight of the Century.”
