30 minutes well-spent

If you're looking for some great economics to read, but don't want to go out and buy a book, have a look at this. Or maybe you've got an urge for some fiction. Again, read this. I think it's brilliant. It is The Cambist and Lord Iron, by Daniel Abraham, from a collection of stories called Logorrhea. Apparently the authors are given unusual words and asked to work them into stories. This one manages to work in some economics, to boot. It's about a currency-exchange clerk and his encounters with the dangerous Lord Iron. Share it with your friends; someone is likely to get a kick out of it. Spotted on Brad Delong's Semi-Daily Journal.
