Format: Paperback
Robert Murphy explains economics to the layperson in an entertaining and very readable book. Simply the best introductory text on economics I've ever read (and I've read a lot of them). Thoroughly recommended.

A book about capitalism and economics doesn't have to be as dismal as many Economists describe their field. This is a light, fun read than will challenge the layman's understanding of what seems like the other C-word nowadays and walk you through the steps clearly and simply.

It's not a textbook, so don't expect grand academia, but it is a very well argued and put forth case for what the author espouses.

For complete beginners. Enjoy it.

I think for most people, this is a great mythbuster. Basically, its the same message as contained in Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson, but in a more "reader friendly" format. If you want to clear most of your socialist misconceptions and brain-washing out of your system, this is a good start.

Format: Paperback
How every you argue it outsourcing will often shrink the pool of potential jobs and total wages more that will be compensated by new jobs. Outsourcing of skilled and unskilled work, and production can be a fatal mistake, because you build competition for and reduce the wealth producing capacity of the country which originally hosted the jobs. The USA and UK face this perils now, so have decreasing ability to feed the increasing greed of government and the banks.

Corporations, in many countries, are not true creations of capitalism, but of socialism, they externalise many costs, while privatising the profits, which can eventually lead to Corporatism aka Fascism. It is no accident that corporations are the main practitioners of outsourcing.
