    Essential Perspectives

    Smith, Ricardo, Keynes; Veblen, Malthus, Mackay; such a book containing each authors' most notable work, all of which successively developed, beginning with Smith, created the landscape of which our 21st century economic perspectives critique. Each author gives a different view, of which some are still relevant, while others not so much; nonetheless, each book will inspire deep reflection, as it should; for each inquires into the nature of man and the consequence thereof. Read them; enjoy them; of them, ask questions; the effort will avial.

    The Roots of Michael Lewis

    These texts first appear wordy until you realize every word is essential. Today's current economy is illuminated by these books that seem so remarkable for their complete relevance to everything in our world. Not just the economy but everything. It is as if Adam Smith wrote his book for the Wall Street Journal last week, not in the days of Thomas Jefferson. I now understand Michael Lewis' ability to so completely understand everything and see it all in economic terms. Lewis rightfully changes nothing of these historic gems but his introductions help the reader understand their importance. Long but worth the effort.
