The Company of Strangers: A Natural History of Economic Life
The Company of Strangers: A Natural History of Economic Life
"A nice overview of why we have markets and why they work better than the alternatives"
Passions Within Reasons: The Strategic Role of the Emotions

"How psychology underpins good economics and free markets, contrasting with the bogus psychological generalizations of mainstream economics"
Big Players and the Economic Theory of Expectations
Big Players and the Economic Theory of Expectations
"Written in 2002, this book deserves greater attention than its price allows, for the accurate and prescient way it explains the behaviour that led up to the Credit Crunch."
Economics in One Lesson
Economics in One Lesson
"The best introduction to the type of economics that has some practical use and basis in reality - very clear, enjoyable, and easy to read"
The Constitution of Liberty (Routledge Classics)
The Constitution of Liberty (Routledge Classics)

"Short but important text - mathematical pseudo-economists ought to go back and read this before spouting any more of the nonsense that has come to pass as economics."
The Wealth of Nations: Books 1-5
The Wealth of Nations: Books 1-5
"Maybe not as original as people think, and not always right, but still more right, more readable and more wise than most mainstream modern economics"
The Limits of State Action
The Limits of State Action
"Another original and great, but more forgotten than Smith, thanks to Germany's disastrous swing to the left after 1848"
What Is Free Trade

Ethics as Social Science: The Moral Philosophy of Social Cooperation (New Thinking in Political Economy Series)
Ethics as Social Science: The Moral Philosophy of Social Cooperation (New Thinking in Political Economy Series)
"An under-rated and under-stated modern great - we'd have been better off if economists had paid more attention to measured thinkers like Yeager than to his more strident contemporaries"
Money, Bank Credit, and Economic Cycles (Hardcover)
Money, Bank Credit, and Economic Cycles (Hardcover)
"It's a bit of a doorstop, but it tells an important story. Updates Mises' "Theory of Money and Credit", which would be a shorter alternative that still stands the test of time"
The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable
The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable
"See also "Fooled by Randomness". Explains why modern mathematical economists are not good at either maths or economics. Gained credibility and profile from correctly warning about the Credit Crunch."
