Thomas Sowell cuts through economic bullshit like a weed-wacker. Title sounds dry but this book is dynamite.
Cartoon version of basic economics, great for both children and adults. Highly recommended.
How bankers created the Federal Reserve Bank for the benefit of bankers, not you. This book predicted the 2008 financial crisis and bailout decades in advance, and reads like an alternative history of the United States.
This book comes highly recommended by many people, as a textbook maybe, but there are better reads on the subject IMHO.
Paul Krugman is one of the most dangerous men alive. Why? Because he is both a brilliant writer – and – wrong about everything. I read this book as opposition research.
Using economic principles to investigate cultural phenomenon can lead to curious results.
A fascinating story of the men who sought to define and control money in American history. I have it on audio and probably listened to it 10 times.
The story of the misfits who saw the 2008 financial crisis coming and set out to profit from it. Amazing people and an amazing book. The movie is pretty good too.
Lewis is a great writer, and his experiences as a new Wall Street trader are both educational and entertaining.
A new way of earning a living emerged with the advent of the Internet, this guy figured it out. You might too.
Although I can’t say that I followed Kiyosaki’s advice to the letter, this book was both an inspiration and an eye-opener to thinking about money in a different way. It also inspired me to begin keeping a personal balance sheet, which turned out to be one of the best things I ever did.
I retired sort of young and sort of rich, so I guess it’s okay.
Trump in all his Trumpiness.
An entertaining romp through the origins of many basic money functions such as lending, insurance, interest rates and so on. Sound boring? It isn’t.
Pretty good book, but the TV mini-series is fantastic for an overview of how economic freedom is the most effective force yet found for improving the life of the every day man. Watch that instead!
Dispels so many popular notions about big government like they are lint. Woods is a great writer and this is a great book. No idea why Obama is on the cover.
