The Hackley Endowment for the Study of Capitalism and Free Enterprise at Fayetteville State University is sponsoring a contest for students to create music videos about supply and demand.
The entries are starting to come in. Here is one from my students:
Funny? Incredible? You be the judge. If think you or someone you know can do better, enter the contest! The winning entry gets $2,500 and others win cash prizes too. Professors tell your students. If your students win you get $500.
I thought of this idea because when I was in college my professor, Walter Block, said that one of the problems is that critics of markets have so many catchy folk songs, but economists don’t have any songs about supply and demand. As Mises said economic ideas rule the world. Now is our chance!
