    Aside from laying out the basics of the opposing ideologies of Hayek and Keynes, it's actually pretty funny.

    This is pretty cool. Maybe this way the fucking pop culture saturated, dumbed down minds of America can get a grip on econ and actually LEARN something.

    Yeah. It's surprisingly good for what it is lol. I figured it'd be terrible.

    Well as a rap, it is definitely terrible :lol:

    But the lyrics are very informative.

    This would be the equivalent of teaching young children academic material via kiddie songs so that they can better understand it, and it makes learning more fun for them :lol:

    Now high school homeboys have no excuse not to grasp the concept of economics.

    I don't know man, this might be up there with the best lyricists of all time. ;)

    Though, on a serious note, it might honestly be the best track of 2010 I've heard so far lol. :doubt:

    For what it offers, yeah it's definitely the best hip hop I've heard. There's not much coming out these days that's worth my ear time.
