    Not necessarily a Liberty.me kind of guy, but a harsh and honest critic of the current state of investment ideology in America (Wall Street) is Michael Lewis.

    Three titles to read for knowledge are:

    Liar’s Poker (inside 1980’s Salomon Brothers and the genesis of the current boom bust mentality)

    The Big Short (those who saw 2008 coming and profited from it)

    Flash Boys (the current issues created by high frequency traders)

      As a nod to popular culture, he also wrote Moneyball and The Blind Side which both became successful major motion pictures.

      Haha, no worries!  I happened to be in two windows during the Google Hangout so I just did it then and there.

    One of the things I think a great book can do is to serve as a simple, efficient and calm ending to an argument.

    There are a great number of people in the world who do not believe in the Theory of Evolution. If this topic ever comes up in conversation, I simply ask them to take the time to read Richard Dawkins’ book The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution. Once they have done that, if they still do not believe in evolution, we can argue about it.

    Getting people to read the book is hard enough, but I haven’t had anybody who has read it tell me that evolution is not a fact.

    Two short books to consider:

    Fiat Money Inflation in France (hopefully with Doug French in attendance)

    “House of Refuge” by Michael DiBaggio. Just read it today. Thoroughly gripping.

    Fiat is already in the library, and we’ll be releasing Refuge this summer.
