In order to hang onto your money, it is essential that you understand money, what sound money is, and why sound money lays the foundation for prosperity. Conversely, you must understand the dangers of unsound money. And, it is important to know that special interests benefit handsomely by causing society not to understand money so that they can introduce the unsound money that benefits their special interests.
This list is not by any means complete, and it will be added to as time passes. Still, I maintain that reading as few as five selections will put you heads and shoulders above today’s college graduates when it comes to understanding money (and economics.)
I know this because I am a college graduate who learned nothing about money and very little about economics in college. I’ve confirmed this assertion by talking with hundreds of other college graduates.
The selections are in three groups: primers, intermediate and scholarly. This is not to say that the primers and the intermediate books are not scholarly written, but that the books under the scholarly list are deserving of higher education study.
Finally, the books are not “rated” by the position in which they are listed.
