Cringe!

I knew this was coming but it’s still cringe-inducing to see rapping by any person who doesn’t usually rap, especially if that person’s real job involves using phrases like “aggregate demand.” This rule should not be violated for any reason, ever. Let the economy fall into structural deficits and/or a liquidity trap, but for the love of all that is decent and holy, do not rap about macro!

    Thanks for the link Gabriel, but I must disagree on your conclusion. It may not be high art, but I think efforts like this are hilarious. Furthermore, a fifth grade teacher I know on the south side of Chicago swears her students will retain any information set to a beat!

    Out of curiosity, on wikipedia philosophy, are you an inclusionist or a deletionist? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deletionism_and_inclusionism_in_Wikipedia

      i don’t really know. i guess i’d be an inclusionist in terms of what gets to have an article and a deletionist in terms of what tangential material stays in an article. however i haven’t really thought about it that much.
