Narratives and modeling

"It is a nice paradox of the way models are used that a humanistic notion -- narrative or storytelling -- is critical to the way that models are used as a mode of inquiry in economic science whether the model narrative is a story about the world portrayed in the model or a correspondence story about the real world, past, present, or future." -- Mary Morgan, The World in the Model, p. 251

    1. No: the book is good, but the reason I'm posting so much on it is that I am reviewing it.
