Short Video: “Keynes as Santa” Spoof on Christmas Spending

Written by Gary North on December 7, 2012

Here is a clever video. It takes apart John Maynard Keynes. It shows why the economic problem is not a lack of spending.

It’s a spoof of those late-night TV ads that used to sell a record collection of famous hit songs, but which today sell CD-ROM collections of famous hit songs.

This collection is perfect for the season: Christmas.

If you think that Keynesians regard the federal government as Santa, this shows you why.

What impresses me is this: the free market videos are a lot more clever than the Keynesian videos.

“What Keynesian videos?” you ask. Beats me.

    Yes… I couldn't agree more Steve … the left spoofs the right on via late night comics. Many of the younger set have no interest in 'news' or education with text books, lectures or discussion (i.e. two of many in the media, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert) This is funny, yet educational in a quick humorous video. The fiscally conservatives of this world need more of these to share.
