If you are interested in economics this is one book of a great series narrated primarily by the late, great Louis Rukeyser of the PBS series Wall $treet Week. It is good to hear his voice again. It is 2 hours and 18 minutes, which was not too long and not too short for me. This one describes the various versions of Keynesian economics. This is a timely topic in today's economic difficulties and the Keynesians are a big part of the debate.
This has many very interesting stories about the important role of espionage in history.
I want Part 2!
This classic by economist Friedrich Hayek, written in the midst of World War II, expresses his fear that any form of socialism will inevitably result in either a Nazi style dictatorship or a Soviet style dictatorship. This is the book that Glenn Beck et al cite when making their claim that Obama is a Nazi ( some people crave preposterous hyperbole like monkeys crave bananas ). While history has proven that Marxism is a disastrous, horrendous failure, other milder forms of socialism, as common in Europe, have clearly not resulted in either dictatorship or serfdom. Less efficient economies? Yes. Serfdom? Absolutely not.
