Keynesian vs. Neo-Classical

In miscellaneous on February 8, 2009 at 7:19 PM

In the January 30 show, “The New Boss” (Act Three), This American Life has a very clear break down of the neo-classical vs. Keynesian economists battle since World War II, culminating with the debate of the current stimulus. Includes interviews with Blinder and Cowen. Also includes a brief biography of Keynes – interesting guy.

This American Life also did two other shows in 2008 that were very helpful in outlining the whole mess that we are in. The first one was in May, “The Giant Pool of Money’, about the mortgage crisis. The second one was in October, “Another Frightening Show about the Economy”, about the credit market collapse.
