for his novel, The Invisible Heart: An Economic Romance. I recommend blurbing it immediately:
i just wanted to let you know that the book you lent me is really good and your students need to read it. it'll make them consider every side of good important economic issues and let them know that just because they argue what seems to be the humanitarian side or majority side of a case doesn't mean they have the right to sit on their high horse and be self-righteous, ignore every other argument. make them read it, it's a fast read and is completely worth it.
love you! xoxoxoxo renee
Co-blogger Todd mentioned his colleague Russell Roberts' economic novels a week ago, and I promptly ordered The Invisible Heart from Amazon. Beloved Daughter Renee, age 16, left to join Beloved Wife in Guatemala a few days ago and although she looked skeptical when I suggested The Invisible Heart if she was looking for reading while doing her school community service project (more about that in another post), she took it along. Now I'm looking forward to reading it.
