Fear the Boom and Bust: Hayek vs. Keynes Rap

The long awaited econ rap video produced by Russ Roberts is now online.  Awesome.

Follow the link to learn more about the video and about Hayek and Keynes.

I’m not only impressed with the video, but also by the fact it was filmed using a Canon 7D DSLR.

I like the production values, but it's just too jarring to have "interest rates" and "animal spirits" mixed in with gunfire and people throwing up in toilets.

Also, I think this video requires a lot of insider knowledge to appreciate. You know, like being in the GMU econ program.

It is interesting to see the growing use of dslr's for video. The Canon 5d markii really ignited the trend, and now the 7d is available.

It's pretty amazing for the money how one can get a video set up with a huge sensor for video, and the use of interchangeable lenses. Of course, there are still some technical issues to overcome, but it still is pretty cool.
