Fight of the Century: Keynes vs. Hayek Round Two

  • Video Recording

This hip hop music video, a follow-up to "Fear the Boom and Bust", examines 20th century economists John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich von Hayek (played by Billy Scafuri and Adam Lustick, respectively) responses to the Great Recession. The central question in the video is whether a successful economy results from a "more bottom up" (i.e. totally free market) or "more top down" (i.e. Economic interventionism) approach.
