A Historical Note on the Use of Fiction to Teach Principles of Economics.
O'Donnell, Margaret G.
Journal of Economic Education, v20 n3 p314-20 Sum 1989
Compares contemporary economic fiction with the nineteenth-century tales of Harriet Martineau. Modern economic writers and Martineau all use the mystery story to attract beginning students and explain complex economic principles. Martineau, however, focused on classical economics, while modern authors emphasize microeconomic theories. (LS)
