I was giving a talk (on zoom, of course) on the Green New Deal last night and was discussing just how long I have been concerned about issues relating to sustainability. I leant back to my bookshelf and pulled out this:

That's a 1973 print of E J Mishan's book. I reckon I bought it in 1974 or 75, when a sixth former. It's influenced my thinking ever since. I've been around this issue for a long, long time.

But it gives rise to a curious question. what are the books that helped shape our thinking on this and other economic issues?
