Hayek vs Keynes

Text settings

This is superb. Friedrich August vs John Maynard. Rapping.

Needless to say, if we were to have a real discussion and a real debate between FAH and JMK this election season then we'd have an election to look forward to. As it is no-one of any sense can be anything but terrified by the nonsense that is about to be unleashed upon us all.

Guilty confession, mind you: I tend to live as a Keynesian while believing or at least


hoping that Hayek is right. If we each contain multitudes we're also made of weakness and contradiction. Right?

And yes, too many videos on this blog lately. Been a busy couple of days. "Proper" blogging to return soon.
