There are 2 classics that everyone should have:
The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money - John Maynard Keynes
The Wealth of Nations - Adam Smith

They serve as good models for more advanced macro policies .





The wealth of nations arrived today.

Wow, I didn't realize it was first written in 1776!

Mine is autographed as well, and it is in German - I mean the book, not the autograph.

How could this guy sign something that he did not fully understand?

This tells me not to believe in everything that has been written....

Although it's a bit dated now (it was written 10 years ago), I found this book to be very good:

Amazon.com: Investor's Guide to Economic Fundamentals (9780470846902): John Calverley: Books
