Explaining Economic Theory with Rap Music

You may not have seen Russ Roberts when browsing our  Top Artists pages, and that would be because he’s not primarily a musician, but in fact an economist.

While you might be wondering why we’re posting something about economics on a music blog, it’s actually simple, Russ Roberts, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution and economics professor at George Mason University has started use rap music to help explain economic theory to those of us who aren’t economists.

Roberts has already written and produced two rap videos which have received more than 4.5 million collective views, highlighting the unique and contrasting philosophies of economists John Maynard Keynes, a proponent of active policy responses to the public sector, and Friedrich Hayek, who advocated free market capitalism.

Roberts will be the first speaker in the new William J. O’Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom Speakers Series sponsored by Andrews Distributing on Tuesday, February 14 at the Crum Auditorium in the Collins Center at SMU Cox.
