Basic Economics has mass market value without obvious mass market appeal. A must read for literally everyone. Everyone. Everyone.
I'm still plowing through the book though I've read several chapters but not in order. I certainly recommend this book because it demonstrates effective critical thinking to how economies work.
Say what you will about that comment, I have a MBA and many of the concepts he share or shot down, should have been obvious to me. Yet I ignored what should have been common sense to believe what is propaganda that is repeated constantly until we are start to believe that 2 + 2 = 5.
Well Dr Sowell screams to remind you that it is 4.
Must have for anyone that hasn't taken economics to the graduate level.
