Rapping Economics


2 February 2010

In case it wasn’t clear watching the Grammys the other night: hip hop/rap is at the dead center of the music industry.  It’s still so bizarre to me watching kids in street gear riff and spit and spar on a gigantic, pyrotechnic, Hollywood stage in front of super-rich people in gala-wear.  (I know the kids are rich too, now; but still…)

Even more bizarre… but in a totally different way… NPRs Planet Money covered a story about a TV producer and an economist getting together to make economics accessible and engaging.  The result:  a pretty-good rap song about Keynes and that other guy.  Shmilarious.  And impressively educational.  Ya gotta see this.
