    I love the point you’re making here. It’s often just as useful to pay attention to the accounts of every day lives of people as it is to the faceless numbers of data. Although both can tell the same story, the impact of true life accounts can often feel far more deeply relevant. Numbers alone can’t magically transport us to the footsteps of another person.

    It’s also a bit of a revelation you’ve given me: to realize that when reading novels (fiction and non), we are often unwittingly learning about economies and cultures.

    Love it. Thanks.
