I m unsure how I ended up with this novel which evidently I ve had for years unread but I thought I d give it a try while in bed with some sort of nasty virus flu It s charming and funny and having been written about American economics of the 1980s proves astonishingly relevant today I suppose a reader would have to be my age or older to recognize the various references I know next to nothing about economics but recognized most of whatwho was being satirized In brief this is the tale of a liberal Harvard econ professor who takes the advice not to do anything noticeable to save the world until after tenure Thus he does all of his scholarly work on the refrigeration industry but develops a system to make money on the stock market by in essence betting against other people s irrationally high expectations The one thing I was not clear on in terms of economics was how he did that as I m not sure how you would do short sales in stock He and his fellow economist wife become fabulously wealthy and attempt to use their income for peace and social justice but of course ultimately run into snags with the SEC which assumes great wealth must be the result of illegal dealingsA fast and enjoyable read And one uotation that much than references to Dan Rather Ed Meese and Ivan Boesky shows the novel is over 20 years old Without uite knowing it Marvin and Marjie had crossed the great divide that which separates benign and agreeable liberalism of which all politicians are known to be tolerant from action which often means serious and highly unwelcome trouble
