Books

My economic theory is based on a little bit of theory, years of experience and some reading

 

 

I am open to suggestions for more reading.  I have ordered some Hyman Minsky to see if I can understand it, but it is taking a while to work through.

In the meantime, my daughter gave me This changes everythingThis changes everything for Christmas (2014).  The book is subtitled “capitalism vs the climate” and I am not sure I agree with the whole of Naomi Klein’s thesis about the rights of the poor being intrinsically tied in to sorting out the climate. But I do agree with her that we need a different mindset about economics going forward otherwise we will keep on getting into the same messes we are in.
