Harry’s Games: D&D, Econ, etc.

Jeff Vandermeer seeks to provide a bit o’ balance while we’re all on this muggles high by inviting one Jill Roberts to air her views on HP7. Jill argues that the Potterverse should be more like Dungeons & Dragons.

Her argument is as convincing as it is similar to the one made by Megan McArdle in the Guardian: that the Potterverse’s magic should be more firmly grounded in economics. There are rather a lot of comments; and, by the way, it was via a comment on Jeff’s blog that I found Megan’s column.
