Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

Fear the Boom and Bust: Keynes vs. Hayek - The Original Economics Rap Battle!
Emergent Order, 2010
In this video, John Maynard Keynes and F. A. Hayek come back to life and go out for a night in town and rap about boom and bust cycles. They battle each other with explanations why there is a boom and bust cylce in modern economies, why there are good reasons to fear boom and bust cycles and how to retaliate them. During the rap battle, many popular notions and key concepts of the two famous economists of the 20th century are thrown around.
