The answer to health reform confusion: A comic book
Confused about health care reform? An MIT economist involved in developing the legislation has a solution: a graphic novel–essentially a super-sized comic book–to explain it all, Christine McConville reports at the Boston Herald.
Jonathan Gruber, a nationally recognized health economist, said his three comic-loving kids encouraged him to use the hip format of the graphic novel to explain the complicated program. “I’m the narrator guiding the reader through the law,” he said. “It’ll have lots of pictures and text.”
This isn’t the first time the graphic novel has been used to explain complicated issues; Eric Hayden offers some examples at The Atlantic.
