Economics in Rap form

I thought Ryan might enjoy this if he hasn't seen it already, but it may be interesting for others as well. They interviewed the creators on NPR, which is how I heard about it. Their goal was to start a debate about economic policy with something that might appeal to a larger audience than econ majors. One of the creators is from the TV world and the other is a professor of economics.

Fantastic, Jake and Crystal! That's an interesting material for my students. They will definitely like it. We've a society http://essaykings.me/ of academic papers on Economics, and I'm sure the guys will be glad to share these videos with our mates. Thanks a lot!
