Videos: Famous Professors On Fiscal Stimulus vs Austerity

I have compiled some of the best discussions with famous professors of economics on their thoughts around the current issue of fiscal stimulus versus austerity. I tried to give a fair voice to each side of the aisle, and in that spirit I start out with a few dialogues where both sides are represented. These are followed by monolouges from each side of the aisle respectively. If you know of any other videos that should be included in the list, please leave a link in the comments section!
