New Econparody Song About “Guess Who”

It’s always a pleasure to introduce new songs from versuplus.com. Their latest release is called “The Ballad of Diamond Jim,”  and is  a collaboration with acclaimed country econosinger/songwriter Merle Hazard and the PBS NewsHour economics team. “Diamond Jim” is an original econosong about banking regulation. It has – of course – nothing to do with the famous CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, also know as “the most dangerous man in america”.

“Our Game is diseconomy of scale. The key is to be too big to fail.”

Diamond Jim

You may watch and listen to the song  (with lyrics) at www.verusplus.com,

or you can download the video at youtube.

And here’s your bonus!

The PBS NewsHour has done an extraordinary 12-minute companion video – featuring former IMF chief economist Simon Johnson – that analyzes the lyric.

You can find it here:

The Ballad of a Would-Be, Too-Big-to-Fail Banker
