H/t to BB for this essential collection.

If the reachable young (and not so young) folks in your circle are not reading and discussing these works, you are wrong.

Minds, then hearts.

  1. I would comment that the analysis of trade in these books is very oversimplified, ignores the socioeconomic consequences of free trade, and flat out wrong in substantial ways…Otherwise, I think they are pretty useful.

    • The socioeconomc consequences of trade are that every human must compete in the marketplace with every other human. Iron curtains can’t hide that need for very long.

  2. If this is a “freestyle” comment area, just wondering why comments are awaiting moderation…..

    don’t bother responding to me-ever, whats the point?

      So what makes you any different from the cops you hate? You are your own enemy.

    • Right. I call trash talking bull shit on all of it, little pitiful man. Unless of course you post ten web links that don’t work. Or pictures from someone else’s web page. You know, something believable, like a bar mitzva in central Nebraska, with a tornado in the background.
      And in closing, I hear from good sources that you’re still banned from weaponsman blog. That, and: President Trump.

      That would be everyone except you. You’re a legend in your tiny mind.

      Your posts are, as you say, pointless, but goading you about the never-ending stupidity you spew is easier sport than shooting fish in a barrel.
      The fish have some sense of self-preservation, after all.

      You’d have to get off your porch and up off your fat ass to do anything, so you’re mainly only a worry to the body lice within your own reach. If even that. I’m laying even odds you have a hover-round in the house, just to get to the john, if you’re not posting from the thinking room itself while marveling at your turds.
      it’s as easy as that.
      Ham sandwiches and lite beer cans tremble in fear at your name, Commander Couch Potato.

      Well, unlike you, we can’t all stay home and suck on the government’s mental disability teat forever. Someone has to make things work. Clearly, that was never you, and never will be. A good man’s got to know his limitations.
      ha ha ha
      Get a napkin…you drooled up some derp there at the corner of your mouth.
      And somebody needs another diaper, you’ve scraped yours pretty clean.

    The Old Testament contains God’s blueprint for national prosperity. Israel was to serve as a beacon, and will do so in the not too distant future (after a certain amount of unpleasantness with the false Messiah).

    The land rests every seventh year, all debts forgiven. Every 50 years a Jubilee, ancestral lands returned to their owners. No giant conglomerates, no dynasties, no MIC. Worth researching!

    Thanks for all the books. It will be interesting how much Biblical wisdom is scattered in them.

    • Here ! Here !
      Many see so much of the old testament as archaic and not applicable to today’s civilizations, but the stuff works and it’s pretty wise text.

  5. inserting humor here:

  6. One very big hole in this list:

    “Unintended Consequences” by John Ross.

    “The Black Swan” by Nassim Taleb will suffice for economics.

    • Yes, and ‘A Failure of Civility’ too.
      Unintended Consequences is out of print and hard to find. I read mine cover to cover at least once, often more than once, per year.

  7. Chuckwalla

    For young people: “Whatever Happened to Penny Candy” by Maybury.

  8. +1 for the meme addendum.
    The message will be lost on many.

  9. Yeah, we have an overly big and overly intrusive Federal Government, I will stipulate that. But this list reminds me of the articles posted over the years on Free Republic claiming that Detroit’s problems are due to Democrats. Yeah, right. In both cases something obvious being missed in all this dutiful worship of strange Austrian economists? Iceland is run by leftists, but it isn’t a festering wound like London.

    I say: hearts first, then minds. Start here:

  10. Since the Holy Bible, the word of God, didn’t make the list, the rest are banal.
