On our off day (we normally publish here Monday, Wednesday and Friday) I wanted to pass along a video that Justin (the Justin of podcast fame) shared with me. Last February in a Friday News Digest we posted a video of John Maynard Keynes and F.A. Hayek -- or at least two people playing those parts - rapping a duel over competing economic philosophies.

I just watched it again and noticed how, coming out of the hotel, Hayek appears to hold up a bus card and was apparently planning to ride the transit (frugality) while Keynes, trying to stimulate the economy, had already ordered a limo. Priceless!

Anyway, appears that a sequel to this video is in the works. Here is a teaser:
