Shelf 5: Political Economy

I grew up in the house of an economist who convinced me, and generations of students at Colorado College, that economics was an art more than a science. He also taught me the mantra that “Economics taught me the value of money, not that money is the only value.” Some of the books on this shelf understand that better than others, but all of them will help get a beat on the mumbo jumbo being circulated by the hordes of experts clogging the news shows.
