Do you know any really good books on economics?
I’ve been needing to better educate myself on economics for a while, but there are so many books out there I’m not sure what to check out.
Here are the sort of topics I’m interested in:
—the rise of capitalism
—capitalism as a global system
—corporations and their influence
—how economics is driven by human society and how it in turn effects human society
—the industrial revolution and it’s relation to economic change
—the East India Trading Company
I’m really just interested in developing my understanding of the current economic system, how it came to be, to what extent it is or isn’t successful and what other systems or alterations are being proposed to promote a more fruitful and ethical economic climate. So don’t feel like you can’t recommend a book just because it’s about the triangle trade instead of tea. If it’s good tell me.
