Excellent. The two books which I’ve selected for your enjoyment are:
- Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell (fifth edition)
- Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt
I’ll send you an e-mail so that you have my contact details and you can reply with the address where you’d like the books delivered.
The first book is quite big, so I don’t anticipate that you’d read it cover to cover immediately. However, I think you’ll find it helpful in explaining different aspects of how economics impacts current topics (e.g., how companies and people agree on a suitable wage for a given job, why rent control is counter-productive (and generally benefits wealthy people)).
Both books are easy reading, so you won’t have to suffer reading through some very dry writing. I thought a lot about selecting The Road to Serfdom, but it’s not an easy read and I want you to enjoy reading the books as much as possible.
If you identify the two books which you’d like me to read, I’ll buy them and start reading them.
