Narrative Economics

Stories appear to the center of a person’s thinking and motivation. Robert Shiller’s new book “Narrative Economics quotes some of Sartre’s thoughts on the subject.

“A man is always a teller of stories, he lives surrounded by his own stories and those of other people, he sees everything that happens to him in terms of these stories and he tries to live his life as if he were recounting it.”

This suggests stories can be the most effective way to connect with other people.
