The Invisible Heart: Book Review

The Invisible Heart

Book Review

By Russell Roberts

Read August 2009

This is subtitled “An Economic Romance.” In it, a high school economics teacher learns to like an attractive English teacher. He brings economic principles to her attention. They argue and learn from each other. Their romance consists of learning to appreciate each other and good natured arguing. There is nothing bawdy.

I think this book is a pretty palatable way for teens and adults to get introduced to many economic principles. The story line carries the action well enough. My niece and sister liked it and recommended it to their friends.

The econ teacher punctures many misunderstandings about supply and demand, how people get poor and rich, how international trade benefits all, how regulations can stifle, how government grows and harms prosperity.
