Using fables to explain complex issues in an entertaining way. What a great idea!
Of course I’m just catching on to what others, like Patrick Lencioni and Kenneth Blanchard, have been doing in print for a decade (or three).
Now the fable telling is active in the visual arts.
Well, I learned while writing the post about the Fight of the Century that one of the drivers of the EconStories web site is an economics professor who wrote a fantastic book I read a year ago. Professor Russell Roberts wrote The Price of Everything – A parable of Possibility and Prosperity. It is a great book that I want to discuss later.
Found out with a bit more research that he wrote two more books in the fable format. They are both on my reading list.
As you might imagine by now, I heartily recommend the videos at EconStories and any of the books written by Prof Roberts.
Creative story telling which can illustrate, educate, and persuade. Superb idea!
I’ll have a fun announcement of my little bitty burst of creativity later today.
In the meantime, check out those fables.
