The boom and bust rap

This has been around for a couple of weeks so not exactly new but, certainly for the wonky among you, absolutely hilarious.

Watch the EconStories Hayek vs Keynes rap anthem:

    Obviously, you knowledge of all things economic knows no bounds. Remind me who asked George Osborne the question “Why do you think the most respected economic commentators think your policy to urgently reduce the deficit through spending cuts will be ruinous? Do you know something they don’t?” on Left Foot Forward on 19 November. It would seem that economic commentators are not what they’re cracked up to be?

    I mean, the stupidity that people say, like: “in order to be credible, the government’s goal should be to eliminate the structural current budget deficit over the course of a parliament, and there is a compelling case, all else being equal, for the first measures beginning to take effect in the 2010-11 fiscal year” (that’s like, just after the election, you know urgent cuts). And they’re even focusing on the deficit and not the stock of debt, idiots. Who are these people anyway: Tim Besley, Sir Howard Davies, Charles Goodhart, Albert Marcet, Christopher Pissarides, Danny Quah, Meghnad Desai (arch-Tory that he is), Andrew Turnbull (you may have met him, can’t remember when you joined HMT), Orazio Attanasio, Costas Meghir, Sir John Vickers, John Muellbauer, David Newbery, Hashem Pesaran, Ken Rogoff, Thomas Sargent, Anne Sibert (I assume WB is on-board as well), Michael Wickens, Roger Bootle, Bridget Rosewell.
