Promoting Free Markets, Free Trade, and Freedom!

Just Finished, Now Reading

May 03, 2009 By: Phred Category: Uncategorized

I was able to finish both of my Thomas Sowell books yesterday.  That man is a great thinker.

Black Rednecks and White Liberals was a very interesting sociological and historical study of different cultures and peoples throughout the globe.  It is filled with virtually unknown (or un-talked about) facts and historical anecdotes.  If you are intersted in history or culture, I recommend this book.

I recommended Basic Economics:  A Citizen’s Guide To The Economy before even finishing it.  This book is a must read for anyone who is even slightly interested in economics, business, or politics.  It explains complex things like markets, wages, and trade in a very simple manner–easy enough for a child to understand.  Dr. Sowell contrasts properties of freer economies with those of more tightly controlled economies like the former Soviet Union. Most importantly, he explains simply and clearly the importance of pricing and how pricing serves as a conveyor of information. Read this book yourself, or give it to that friend you have who doesnt understand simple economics.

I have started reading two new books.

The first is Thomas Paine’s Common Sense. This book was released as a pamphlet in 1776 and immediately became very popular. This book was tremendously important. I read this book about a year ago, but I felt the need to reread it. Im sure that everybody has heard of this book, but I doubt most of yall have read it. You can get a used copy for less than $4. Well worth it.

The second book is Dr. Ron Paul’s Revolution: A Manifesto. Ive heard good things about this one.

If you decide to buy any of the books above, please buy them through my links. If there are any other books that you are thinking about buying, I have placed an Amazon search bar on the top right side of the page. Thanks!
