Economics Readings

The Wealth of Nations
Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations is one of the most important books of economic thought ever written. It's a good idea to know what is in it...and what isn't. The idea of the "Invisible Hand" comes from this book, but Smith didn't use it the way many economists use it today.

The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money
John Maynard Keynes' General Theory is of equal importance to The Wealth of Nations. Again, there are many people who use and misuse this theory. It's a good idea to understand what is actually in the original document.

General Links

FRED: I like to use the Federal Reserve Economic Data when I write about economics. This is one of the best resources you can have at your disposal. 

Consumer Reports: Consumer Reports is a really good way to get actual useful information on the products that you may want to buy. Don't rely on the advertisements to help you make your decision. They are designed to deceive you.
