    Just discovered a very interesting, and very prescient, book concerning income inequality in the 21st C., looking forward to learning what the future has in store for us: "Capital in the Twenty-First Century", by Thomas Piketty, translated by Arthur Goldhammer; Stratfor had a good synopsis of the book in this week's report: https://www.stratfor.com/weekly/lunc...eid=6df540a918

    Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

    Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets by Nassim Nicholas Taleb - Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists

    Basically this informs us that we are not really capable of interpreting and acting upon statistical data.

    I suspect after all the recent bubbles in the market most of us already suspect that is true, but this book is certainly worthy of your time.

    SMJ,

    What book would you recommend to begin a close reading of the thoughts of Von Mises?

    I've recently read Krugman's book on the economic meltdown, The GREAT UNRAVELING and am currently reading Stiglett's book FREEFALL which is also germane to that event.

    Basically they are saying much the same thing....the economic meltdown is a conbination of poorly designed (or nearly totally absent) regulations, suspiciously bad RISK assessments, outright fraud, and Animal Spirits making the herd sometimes overly optomistic and, once the feces hits the fan, stampeding for the exits.

    Stiglett's tome is, I think, somewhat better as it offers suggestions for how we might correct the problems we face.

    I've finally gotten around to reading "Wealth of Nations" and my impression from the first couple of chapters is that everything else ever written just reiterates this classic or else is wrong. Adam Smith had to be one of the most brilliant minds ever.
