Shane’s Take — Poor Economics
I read this hoping there would be some insights on tackling poverty here in the US. Just as the tagline says, the real focus of this book is on global poverty. Some tips are applicable to poverty here in this country, but most of the focus is on the unique circumstances in 3rd world economies. That said, the actual research contained is excellent. The reasons that those in poverty don’t always make the optimal decisions is clearly laid out with stats and anecdotes. This would be especially good for those with a global focus.
