ArjocraftSmallerConversation is my favorite metaphor. It helps me to make sense of what is going on in a field like economics, what causes so much miscommunication (the fact that people operate in different and incompatible conversations), and it also proves to be good metaphor to characterize what is going on in markets and in the arts.  When you say “art is a conversation” instead of “art is a product” you immediately get a different conversation that makes more sense, at least so I experience.
