The Economist reviews House of Outrageous Fortune this week and finds it not gossipy enough (A-Rod‘s hookers apparently failing to satisfy, for once) yet simultaneously not serious enough, lacking in “serious” analysis of whether recent economist policy harmed the less well off while enriching 15CPW residents. But it does toss this tasty tid-bit into the porridge: The book, says the magazine, “demonstrates conclusively the abiding truth of Clare Boothe Luce’s observation, ‘Money can’t buy happiness, but it can make you awfully comfortable while you’re being miserable.’” And that sounds…just about right.
