[Rental available after member registration]
This is a collection of conversations between economic amateurs and up-and-coming economists on the theme "What is the economy?" On the amateur side, Mr. Masahiko Sato, an advertising creator who worked on "Dango Three Brothers" and "Polinky". Heizo Takenaka is currently a professor at Keio University after working at the Ministry of Finance and Harvard University on the academic side. Thanks to the casualness of the dialogue format, it is a book that even those who are unfamiliar with the economy can fully read. After all, the audience is top-notch in the advertising industry. A professional who pursues how to convey important messages in a short time and in an easy-to-understand manner. Mr. Sato's question is simple and compact, but it quickly gets to the heart of the matter. On the other hand, Mr. Takenaka gave a clear answer, interweaving parables. Just by reading Chapter 1, "What is money?", which begins with the simple question "What is money?", the reader will feel the economy very familiar. Chapter 3, "Pay or Take," is about taxes. It teaches us once again that taxes, which many Japanese people (especially salaried workers) have little sense of, are the foundation of democracy. Chapter 4, ``What makes America so,'' delves into not only economics but also culture and historical background, and is a topic of interest to Japanese people who are under the influence of American culture. The peculiarity of this book is that it deals with the hard subject of economics while also being entertaining. There are trivia topics such as "What is the world's first stock company?", so it is recommended as a conversation book. The correct answer is East India Company.
