A PPE reading list of worth: suggestions please

Posted on

I liked this comment posted on the blog this morning from a person who I know who uses the pseudonym Tony_B:

Here’s an idea worth considering. What’s a top ten of books or authors to recommend for a modern education in economics, power, politics and finance? Easy, entertaining and imparting the ‘education’ not forthcoming in our schools, universities and media.

My starter, just to catch up with the myth makers and to enjoy, is;

1. Yuval Noah Harari: i) ‘Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind’ and ii) ‘Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow’

I’m reading Homo Deus now, great stuff. There is some hand waving and brevity, but Harari’s work is a compendium of ideas and ‘facts’.

Thiughts anyone?
