You can't just add text, you need to add flowables. Story is a list
of flowables.

You would probably want to try story.append(Paragraph("Economic
Component Pairs", normal))

> SimpleDocTemplate('ecoForm.pdf').build(story)

To learn more about how things work, take a look in the ReportLab
User Guide and Graphics Guide. I learnt the basics there. Also, take
a look at the tests. They aren't easy to comprehend, but do help if
you have some patience :)

good luck
