Poetry, Metaphor, and Economics

James Geary at All Aphorisms, All the Time posts on Metaphor and Economics, which is a response to Stephen Ziliak's article at The Poetry Foundation, Haiku Economics. These discussions of course reverse things as we discuss them here a bit, as they are talking about how poetry could and should (and do) influence economics. Metaphor and poetry would seem a logical fit for Austrian economists.

It's easy money
That makes the bubble grow

  1. Limerick by yours truly:

    There once was a man name Mises,
    Who looked at the socialist pieces,
    Of theory and said,
    We’re better off dead,
    Life’s better when freedom increases.

    More of them here.
