Recommended Reads for December: Finance Fiction Fix

Pennies spilling out of a glass jar.

The world of finance can provide stories that both inspire and outrage. In this month’s Recommended Reading virtual display, transport yourself to that world with novels and feature films where economics is central to the plot. Elinor Fulton, The Financier, and other stories of love and economics, and videos like Killer of Sheep or Song of the Rivers revealing commerce as a way of life, will provide entertainment over the holidays. Titles like Fictitious Capital: Silk, Cotton, and the Rise of the Arabic Novel or The Merchant of Modernism: The Economic Jew in Anglo-American Literature offer a meta look at how finance and fiction merge. The list incorporates older stories that offer an intriguing look into how economic life has changed over the years, foreign-language items provide a global perspective, and a list of favorites from library staff and users that you can check out from Lauinger or your local public library.
