Economics, Business & Investing » Economics
Welcome to our economics books recommendations. Economists recommending books for us include Nobel Prize winners and eminent academics, as well as journalists and authors.
A good starting point are our annual best economics books of the year recommendations, from British economist Diane Coyle. If you know nothing about economics, journalist Tim Harford (aka ‘the Undercover Economist’) has some books to get you thinking like an economist.
Much of the latest research in economics tends to be published in the form of articles rather than books, so that’s why some interviews—like the one from 2007 Nobel Prize winner Eric Maskin—recommend mainly articles.
If you’d like to start with an economics textbook to understand the basic tools of the trade, we recommend this one. That’s a good way of understanding both what economics is and what it isn’t, incorporating some of the critiques of the way economics has been taught.
