Denis O’Brien recently seemed annoyed at the sight of academic economists blogging and twittering. I am not sure what he would make of the potential emergence of a new trend, academic economists rapping. The link below is to perhaps the first viral economics rap-song, describing the differences of opinion between Hayekian and Keynesian approaches to recession recovery. One of the authors is Russ Roberts, one of the people behind Econtalk podcasts, which are among the best resources for economics on the web. It is actually quite good but does raise the question of where all this might go. “NAMA: The Musical” would be up there for me.
