Good drama = good economics

Drama is truly compelling when it exposes the raw, painful trade-offs its characters face

When the term economics is used in relation to drama, what springs to mind is the financing and the box office takings of a film, or the sale of broadcasting rights for television series. There are also a few movies in which economics itself features, like Margin Call or The Big Short, with a cameo appearance of Richard Thaler, the behavioural economist and 2017 Nobel laureate.
