Abstract:

Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is a reflection on how the aridity of economic speeches, lectures and presentations usually conceals an underlying human drama, often a tragedy. Design/methodology/approach ‐ A fictional poem presents the reflections. Findings ‐ Meditation on how economic policies cannot be divorced from their social context despite their often bland and "distancing" forms of expression. Research limitations/implications ‐ The paper stimulates thought on the economic and social consequences of decisions, including those individuals with whom we are in direct contact. Originality/value ‐ The poem is an individual comment on the "realities" behind economic decisions and how ignorance or considerations of personal safety constitute weak moral defences.
