This paper aims to join this interdisciplinary community by situating the two fields side-by-side within a historical context of political economy. Political economy research considers not just the merit of economic models, but studies their impact within the larger society, and analyzes their transition from the private policy-making body to the public sphere. It is within this sphere that economics and literature come at a particularly interesting crossroads, where the idea of joining hands is not simply intriguing but almost necessary: culture.
