Harry Potter and the Economic Segregation of Muggles
August 3, 2017
Harry Potter contains a ton of incredible lessons about society, authoritarianism, and the power of love and individualism in the face of people who would exclude others based on group identity. But something people don't think about as much are some of the economic lessons that we can draw from a world segregated into wizards and muggles. On this episode of Out of Frame, we take a look at what the world might look like if magic and non-magic people were actually allowed to trade and interact with each other without the Ministry of Magic obliviating and arresting people for it.
