  • I just finished Jane Eyre and now I searched for books for beginners to understand economy. I'm reading "How an econonmy grows and why it crashes", though not sure about it, there are some radical opinions.

        An amazing book and one that should be read by anyone considering self-sufficiency.

            • I'm reading Moneyless Manifesto. Do a google search and you can read it free online. Even if you don't want to live moneyless, there's great info on how to do things without money.

                I think the best and clearest introduction to economics is "Economics in One Lesson", by Henry Hazlitt.

                I believe that you find your current book radical because it is not based on Keynesian economics, which is about all that is taught these days. Peter Schiff instead believes in the Austrian theory of economics, which got its name because its founders were from Austria. If you ever want to read the Austrian critique of Keynes, Hazlitt's "Failure of the New Economics" is excellent. Hazlitt had a gift for providing clear explanations of complex ideas.

                    • "Sweet potato power" - finding it a bit simplistic for my taste. But it's probably a decent first book for someone who has zero familiarity with paleo/primal and doesn't have much of a scientific or medical background.

                          • What are the best books by Ayn Rand that everybody has read? I am beginning to become interested in the political structure of our society, and I feel that I agree with a lot of views that people have parroted from her.

                                Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead are probably her most popular works. She also wrote The Anthem, We the Living and Night of January 16th among a few others. I would start with "Atlas Shrugged" as I think "Fountainhead" is a harder read. Atlas Shrugged was a life changer for me and changed the way I think and view life in general.
