Books I recommend…

I’ve read:

Free Trade Under Fire by Douglas Irwin

I recommend this book because it will truly open your eyes to why free trade benefits all. As it may be simple to you in your eyes when you engage friends in debates this book is your bible against classic protectionism arguments.

The Privatization of the Oceans by Rognvaldur Hannesson

Everyone should be familiar with the fishing industry and how no one owns the seas. Because of this, there has been mass over fishing and Mr. Hannesson offers some viewpoint on how we can privatize the oceans and fishing industries. Somewhat a dense read, you may have to read it twice.

The Trouble with Africa: Why Foreign Aid Isn’t Working by Robert Calderisi

This book explores the one area of the world that has constant negative growth. The same area were much of the foreign aid is going from the World Bank. He. himself, worked for the World Bank and gives great first hand accounts, while looking at the successes and failures.

And a book I hated:

The Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins

Link is to my Review


"The good life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge." ~ Bertrand Russell

(Not that I completely agree with this guy in other areas)

If you love Economics, learn about it…

  1. You all really to need to read the free trade book. Its a unpopular view, but educated Americans can reverse the trend of protectionism.
