Good Economics Books

If you are reading this blog, it shows you have the initiative to apply to a really good university - Oxbridge, LSE, Warwick, UCL, Bath and so on. Some of these universities (Oxbridge, UCL) will invite you to an interview. It's a good idea to have read an Economics book before going to such an interview, so here are some to choose from. It's a good thing to read book anyway - every time you open the cover of a book, you are passing through a door into another world.....

You can get these books from Pat in the library for free - you might also like to give some thought to the economics of a system which allows you to consume products for free in this way......

Freakonomics - Stephen Levitt
The Armchair Economist - Stephen Landsburg
Naked Economics - Charles Wheelan
Sex, Drugs & Economics - Diana Coyle
The Accidental Theorist - Paul Krugman
In Defence of Globalisation - Jagdish Bhagwati
The Truth About Markets - John Kay
Why Most Things Fail - Paul Ormerod
The World is Flat - Thomas Friedman

And on more general topics....
