Thank you all for the comments and e-mails on my previous posting regarding markets. I promise to continue that thread in a few days time.
Here are some of my favourite books on markets!
To read more about market systems, their histories, and a broad overview of the topic, start with Reinventing the bazaar: a natural history of markets by John McMillan. Other authors that have helped to popularise the topic are Levitt and Dubner with their Freakonomics books, or Tim Harford with The Undercover Economist. For the more serious readers, take a look at John Kay’s Culture and prosperity: the truth about markets: why some nations are rich but most remain poor or Lindblom’s The market system: what it is, how it works, and what to make of it.
All of these and other books are available on our Amazon storefront!
