Seven Books

On occasions I am asked which books are worth reading or are my favourites.

These questions are of course impossible to answer and any attempts are extremely subjective; but that said I think the ones below are fascinating and open up lots of ideas and thoughts.

For some Christmas & New Year reading they are all well worth considering.

George Cooper   The Origin of Financial Crises – Central Banks, Credit Bubbles & the Efficient Market Fallacy. Harriman House 2008

Eric D Beinhocker   The Origin of Wealth. Random House 2006
