Books to Read to Understand the Economy

by | Jun 14, 2015 | General | 0 comments

It is no secret that the financial literacy of people in our country is low. You could say the same thing about the understanding of the economy. The following is a list of books that I believe everybody should read in order to be well informed about the economy. If you only had to read one book, I would recommend Economics in One Lesson. It is the best introduction to the Austrian School of Economics.

  • Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt
  • How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes by Peter Schiff
  • The Case Against the Fed by Murray N. Rothbard
  • The Biggest Con by Irwin A. Schiff
  • Capitalism and Freedom by Milton Friedman
  • Greenspan’s Bubbles by Bill Fleckenstein
  • The Collapse of the Dollar and How to Profit from It by James Turk
  • A History of Money and Banking in the United States by Murray N. Rothbard
  • Currency Wars by James Rickards
