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.
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.
Economists are strange. Nuts might be a better word. Sometimes I feel like Mugatu taking crazy pills. It is painful to say. Everyone wants to fit in.
Going through MWG, Stigler’s Theory of Price, and Rothbard’s Man, Economy, and State at the same time has brought out many similarities and differences between them about what it means to do economics. More clearly, my process has highlight the differences in teaching economics.
