1/ Keynes versus Hayek:
In 2010, this well-known video was produced: Fear the Boom and Bust: Keynes vs. Hayek - The Original Economics Rap Battle! It is still up to date. It
correctly shows Keynes as being a self-confident English elitist, and Hayek as a more insecure emigré intellectual. This film of Keynes is a rare video of him, explaining the
consequences of Britain leaving the gold standard in 1931: it clearly shows the logic of macroeconomics which Keynes brought to economics. Hayek got his revenge years later, as in this video in which he explains that Keynes' reputation had declined, while he - Hayek - was still alive. In another video, Hayek even claims that Keynes knew little about
economics. In contrast, Paul Krugman, who wrote an introduction to Keynes' General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, believed it probably to be the most important book in economics ever.
Actually, Keynes and Hayek had a lot of respect for each other.
Round Two is the follow-up rap video in which Keynes and Hayek continue their fight.
2/ "Money" by Philip Larkin
This poem was written by one of Britain's greatest 20th century poets, Philip Larkin, who worked much of his life as a librarian at the University of Hull. His style is simple, detached and sardonic. Though his reputation suffered after his death from much racism in his private life and letters, he
remains popular. This is a video of Larkin reading his poem, and reflects his rather cynical view of life, and the role money plays in life.
3/ NFTs - SNL (Saturday Night Live)
"What the hell's in NFT?" This rap song parody refers to Harvard, Yanet Yellen (The US Treasury Secretary), Eminem, Morpheus from The Matrix, and Good Will Hunting, etc.
