The Keynes piece featured excerpts of the YouTube video below — so I’m reposting my original post of the rap from a year and a half ago. It’s salient now, more than it was then. However, a post at the blog of the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) suggests Keynes’s legacy is much greater than this series lets on. What do you think, Dear Reader?
This is really good.
It’s a pretty good rundown of the fight between Keynes and Hayek, conducted mostly after Keynes’ death in economics classrooms and central banks world wide.
Watch it, and hope for more soon, at Econstories, the blog of the guys who created the thing, John Papola and Russ Roberts.
