Merle Hazzard Meets Arthur Laffer


Merle Hazard is America’s first and only country music star to sing about mortgage-backed securities, derivatives, and leveraged buyouts. In this video, he meets famed economist Arthur Laffer, and Laffer gives Merle the idea for a song, "In the Hamptons."

He's not a star; He's a joke, with a name stick somewhere between Merle Haggard and moral hazard.

I rather liked it. Especially the Muppet-esque background vocals. This one's destined to shoot up the charts.
