Book: The Penguin History of Economics
The Penguin History of Economics.
This book observes that the fate of countries and peoples is not only controlled by kings and generals. The economist may toil in a library, unassuming and unknown yet the ideas in his books can affect the course of history over hundreds of years. This book covers economics from the Greeks and Hebrews to the present day. Highly relevant to the attitude towards the environment as we have moved from the dogma of Keynes to Friedman and maybe towards the insights of Schumacher.
