There are many books that I’ve read that continue to influence my thinking. An important book for me is “Philosophy: Who Needs It?” by Ayn Rand. This book was important, not because I became a Randian. I didn’t after that book nor “Atlas Shrugged”. Instead, it was the first book I read that urge me to think about philosophy.
(I apologize to any commentators for the slow response. I just got back from my honeymoon and as much as I love discussing economics with you, it wasn’t my first priority.)
(Update 8/5/2021: I wrote this during the first year of my PhD. I would no doubt emphasize less about math and more about formal modeling today.)
Most of the stuff I post is pretty esoteric and nerdy. Only a small group of economists probably like it. I mean me and a random guy in Slovenia. That’s about it.
