The summer break is over and school has started back up in America for most students. This can be a time of both excitement and nerves but it also is a time for learning!
In celebration of learning I’m going to share a little behind the scenes secret about one of my bonus short story: A Matter Economics (I promise it will make a lot more sense in a second!)
This short story features the characters from The Prince’s Bargain, which is the third book in the Elves of Lessa series. Myth is much more bookish then the other heroines in this series, and her dedication to her work has made her an expert on both translating and trade/merchant topics. Which is why it makes sense for her to think of matchmaking her friends from a perspective of economics.
And now it’s time for the secret. I was 100% inspired to include her focus on economics thanks to this Studio C video: The School of Fashion. It has their trademark humor and jokes but it also has one of the best explanations of Economics I’ve ever seen, and even includes a practical example. As the comments on the video attest – they do a better job explaining Economics in 1 minute then most classes do in a semester. Do yourself a favor and watch this video!
