    Everything by Thomas Sowell pretty much. Did you know he was once a marxist?



    At least "I" find his books accessible anyways. YMMV

    I guess, I would ask you what or where you are trying to get to since it's a yugely broad category. Personal finance, market finance, market economics, etc.

    Do you want to make money personally? Do you want to understand Wall Street? Do you want to understand economics? etc.

    Old interviews with great economists are also amazing as a resource in the digital age since often those interviews are aimed at laymen and not stuffy academic works.

    but irregardless, A Random Walk Down Wall Street will make you both hate finance but also make you marvel at the efficiency of a decentralized system.

  • Got my woke on too.



    Warrior Cop was probably the better of the two, because it covered more. Some shocking stats on SWAT team usage. It triggered my libertarian sensibilities pretty good.

    I Can't Breathe, a story well-told. The way Eric Garner was killed is pretty fucked up.

    Recommend both.

    Taibbi is THE guy to read when it comes to the 2008 financial crisis. He was doing amazing work for Rolling Stone back then.

  • Those were books I’d read recently that I liked.

    Official recommendation list would include:

    Blood Meridian
    For Whom the Bell Tolls
    1984
    The Thrawn trilogy
    1776
    The Hunt for Red October
    Moneyball
    The Right Stuff

    Just to name a few...

    I’ll add them and figure out a way to post the Google sheet without Doxing myself.
    Just create another google account like "[email protected]"(probably taken) and then have THAT account share the doc. That's what I did for the first couple of podcasts.
    Did this with a [email protected] account.

    Thanks for the vids. I love Sowell, but I'm not sure I'd read any of this books (article only previously) until this summer. He is quite accessible.

    My real thanks, however, is for the chance to hear #MyBillBuckley say "So Nubiiiiiiile."

    I’ll recommend this one. “Influenza” by Dr. Jeremy Brown. Pretty lightweight book but lots of presaging about our current shitshow. Also get this bit of trivia: A Tulane prof has found that the most elderly in home cities of Super Bowl teams are 18% more likely to die of the crud. Also, Tamiflu is snakeoil.

    From a while back, it's actually a very nice feel-good story.

    This is an outstanding book. According to a WSJ article yesterday, George W. Bush read this and it had a big impact on policy.

    Highly recommend.
