Keynes vs. Hayek on BBC Radio 4

John Maynard Keynes and Friedrich Hayek are regarded as two of the twentieth century’s greatest economists. Modern day followers came together at LSE to debate the ideas of their intellectual heroes. The event was chaired by Paul Mason.


  1. Weepin’ Buddha on an incline! Economics is 80 years out of date!

    Do physicists get together and rehash Bohr/Einsteign/Schroedinger discussions?

    Do construction firms stage imagined discussions between outdated engineers?

    Weepin Jesus! This is appalling. Can’t economics departments acknowledge that actual operations already moved on – 80 years ago, and continued moving FURTHER on ever since?

    Note to acolytes of imagined academic heroes. You do NOT own operational reality. Get over it. It moved on via many added layers of orthogonal, operational dimensions, while you were still arguing over which obsolete tangent to follow into oblivion.

    It’s beyond pathetic or irrelevant. It’s suicidal. Suicide via Luddite Credentials, in a race to extinction. They should have also invited the acolytes of Kevorkian to the discussion. That would have at least made it educational for new students, as a warning example.
