I’ve read 3 books by Thomas Sowell:
|Thomas Sowell Basic Economics 4th Ed: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy|
|Thomas Sowell Applied Economics: Thinking Beyond Stage One|
I think, the first two books are must read. They address many issues we face all the time in our lives. Thomas Sowell is a big and avid proponent of liberal economics. He always discusses issues how they will evolve under pressure of different forces (Thinking Beyond Stage One). I try to implement this way of thinking in my practice as well.
I also liked:
|Mark Skousen The Making of Modern Economics: The Lives and Ideas of the Great Thinkers|
It’s a very extensive excursion into historical development of economical thought and ideas. But this book is a bit different. It introduces us to private lives of thinkers, who shaped our economical knowledge now. I got a better understanding of how did they come to these ideas and conclusions, what were they interested in, what really mattered for them, who or what circumstances shaped there values.
