The Rap on Economics

O'Grady on Haiti... Insuring Kenyan Cattle...

Keynes vs. Hayek, a rap video developed by John Papola and Russ Roberts. It might be a great discussion starter for an economics class.

For a class? I think economics is fascinating, but this kind of thing just makes me cringe, and suspect it would have similar effects on students. I think something like 'freakonomics' is a better strategy of getting people interested if you want to spark a discussion - showing how economics relates to real world, non-simplified situations.

I thought it was a lot of fun and well done.

I think it would be great for a class opener at the college level.

First, the rap seems silly, then you quickly realize how good the content is. And then after a few more listens, you realize it’s not a bad song either.

Congratulations to Russ Roberts.
