Ludwig von Mises and Karl Marx

I watched an entertaining and educational video last night from the American Institute for Economic Research.

AIER launched a project called “March of History” and this video is their latest offering. They pit Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) against Karl Marx (1818-1883) who is considered the “godfather of socialism” in a rap battle.

Yes, a rap battle, and I love it. (Hey, my generation had Schoolhouse Rock so why not?)

It’s a debate between capitalism and socialism like you’ve never seen before and my favorite thing on the internet this week.

It’s over 10 minutes long, but worth the time. You can read the lyrics with additional information here and watch the video below:
