This was put out by the Mercatus Center at GMU, part of the Kochtopus. http://mercatus.org/charles-koch
Good point. It's kind of like how if George Soros gives money to NBC, no Republican is allowed to find the channel entertaining.
Smellvin: not denying that the video is entertaining because it is. It's well done. I just pointed this out because while watching it I thought there was a definite bias toward Hayek, a favorite economist among a lot of right wingers. For instance the opening shows the guard as being a huge Keynes fan and then subjecting Hayek to an intrusive full-body search, implying that Keynes is authoritarian while Hayek is the opposite. So I Googled the Mercatus Center and found the Koch connection.
More info about the Koch brothers, if you're curious.
