This article is over 14 years old and may contain outdated information

A brief perusal of Wikipedia shows that John Maynard Keynes and F. A. Hayek never fought each other on Celebrity Deathmatch.  If this is something over which you might mourn, the you’ll be interested to know that Econstories.tv has a really nicely produced video depicting a rap battle between the two titans of economics.

At first we were worried that we didn’t understand enough about economics to post this video.  Then we remembered that nobody understands enough about economics, and we felt a little better.

Keynes and Hayek appear in a modern Manhattan to attend an economics conference.  Intellectual discourse ensues.
