Nowadays I usually buy beautiful books in hard cover, hard copy, but when my old eyes have hundreds of pages to read, the Kindle is what makes it possible.
I wouldn't have you think that I'm just an esthete or just a someone studying houses. I do read lots of books that I really OUGHT to read. I always have read them, and some periodicals, if they seem to be worthwhile. I'll even download a complete Shakespeare when I realize that I know absolutely nothing about Richard II, and Holinshed for good measure.
Economics, however, has next to no pictorial interest! I don't count statistical charts as pictorial.
So this post occurred to me. Politics is mind-boggling, but economics, whether in the first age of monetization or today, is fundamental and interesting.
Besides, with a writer so good that the book is a leading contender for the National Book Award, I usually try to read the books. So this one.
And I really am glad that the famous Bull is staying where he is; I like that statue.
