Books on Economics

Could someone please direct me to some beginner level books on economics or to a thread that already covers them? I feel I am severly lacking in my knowledge on the subject and feel I owe myself and my race to make sure I learn. Thanks!

Cygnus shows some promise.

I think this is a question that should probably be asked more often.

With all the different brands of bean-counting and their associated balderdash, I've become wary and have only looked at the most basic texts. A lot the books that seem like good general texts are really free-market or social-welfare propaganda. This is truly an arcane field.

So far the following seem to be helpful: Economics (Duffy, John), Economics: A Self-Teaching Guide (Wiley).

Balders gate is noble of speech.Balders gate is noble of speech.

to understand what has been happening to the world over the last 100 years or so read a century of war anglo-american oil politics by William Engdahl which describes in great detail how oil has caused two particular countries which you could probably guess who they are to do anything it has to do to control the oil industry. A great read!!!

Recently read these two:

"The Collapse of Globalism, and the Reinvention of the World" by John Ralston Saul. Argues that the Globalist Economic agenda failed in comparison to what it claimed it could produce, and though it is largely discredited is still being held as the ideal paradigm to follow merely through a lack of an opposing worldview. Has it's faults, though gives a good account of the development and implementation of economic theory over the last 40 years in particular.

"Prosperity Without Growth, Economics for a Finite Planet" by Tim Jackson. A better example of the failings of the Globalist agenda by revealing the holes in the perpetual growth mechanism that current economic theory requires. Seems obvious (though evidently not to economists) but put simply: a sub-system (the economy) held within a larger system (the environment) can't continully grow when the larger system is finite.

Another of interest is: "The Sweet Spot, How Australia made its own luck and could now throw it all away" by Peter Hartcher. Interesting as an example of a modern developed economy that avoided the downturns and recessions of the last 20 years by steering an individual path; using some elements of the neocon paradigm but introducing other elements and restrictions into the mix of a unique character. There is some misinformation (the author works for one of Australias major dailys) regarding the benefits of the global agenda, yet still very informative.

I used "Economics" by N. Gregory Mankiw at university. Quite a classic and it very well explains all the basics about free-market liturgy in the first chapters.

The book is a bit expensive (but very good) so try to borrow it if you can (or find it on Internet somewhere).

It's completely free-market oriented but very useful and informative to understand the current economic system and economic news.

Powmia 's reputation has not travelled afar.

"The Lost Science of Money" by Stephen Zarlenga


"The World Order: A Study in the Hegemony of Parasitism" by Eustace Mullins


Why is Europe the worst when is comes to economics?

I would look at the works of Steve Keen, and anything that has "chaos" in the title or subtitle. And David Orrell's Economyths.

I am still trying to wash my brain clean from what I learnt once a long time ago.
