Hear me out – an economic romance novel!
This had the feel of Atlas Shrugged where the characters are mostly there to put forward their viewpoint. There’s a burgeoning romance, but it’s mostly about economic ideas and how they play out. It’s effective in that questions can be asked and answered within a conversation between the two main characters.
I enjoyed reading about a lot of ideas and stories that Russ shares in his EconTalk podcast.
