George Mason University economics professor Russ Roberts gets a lot of airtime; he appears sporadically as an expert on a variety of NPR shows – Marketplace on the air as well as the excellent Planet Money podcast. He also hosts his own podcast, Econtalk, which is more of a commitment with its usual hour+ running times.
Now you can add rap producer to the list of media achievements. Howard who? Roberts is on his way to being the new king of all media, it seems.
WBUR and All Things Considered have a story on how the rap came about, but it’s nowhere near as much fun as the rap itself. Pretty well done, though I’d be interested to hear from any of you who aren’t already familiar with the two economic schools of thought about whether it really taught you anything.
