On a post about Caroline Lucas and how her expertise in Elizabethan sonnets leads her to not understand perhaps the finer points of the economics of food retailing we get, as a comment:
Shall I compare thee to a Somerfield?
Thou art more grandly built with wider bays:
Fair winds do bargains for the shopper yield
And our consumers profit all their days.
Well done to Victor Southern.
In fact, I like that idea enormously. Rewrites of famous bits of poetry to explain economics to humanities graduates.If we can get enough pieces together I even know a publisher who would put it out.
Could even have some spoofs of prose pieces as well.
Start with the A level economics syllabus perhaps and then make sure there\’s a piece or two explaining each point….
Or maybe just look for decent spoof pieces.
Hell of a lot of work though, unless it can be crowd sourced…..
