Austrian economics gets a mention on “The Simpsons”
It’s nothing big, but this reference, which is from the most recent episode of The Simpsons, came across my Facebook feed last night and I had a good laugh, especially when Mr. Burns said, “Notice how the Keynesians climb trees, while the Austrian school economists hide under rocks”. Watch the video after the jump.
This isn’t the first time that The Simpsons have referenced free market thought. A few years ago or so, they reference Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead in much broader detail. You can check that out here.
