If you’re like me, you like to keep up on what’s going on in the political world, but a lot of times you just don’t have the time to read all the books required to truly understand some of the wonk-oriented policy disagreements. For me, one of those areas is economics. Is Obama’s stimulus a good thing? Bad thing? Much the argument comes down to a fight between Keynes (it’s good!) and Hayek (it’s bad!) and their outlooks on markets and governments.
I don’t have the time to read their books, but I do want to have an informed viewpoint. When the modern world is so busy, you need simplifying tools that can get the information you need without the need for massive time investment. No, I’m not talking about Wikipedia (though there’s that too). I’m talking about rap. See below.
