Reader's Diary #1166- Julian Gough: The Great Hargeisa Goat Bubble
In "The Great Hargesia Goat Bubble," Julian Gough uses the beheading of goats in Somalia to explain some theories and principles of economics. As an analogy, I'm not sure it totally works in clarifying some of the more complicated nuances for us laypeople, but as a story it's fine. It's humorous in a ridiculous Catch-22 sort of way and the voice is uniquely eccentric. Word of warning, however, don't get too attached to Emily.
