You will find much more various things and will find much more easy to learn the things you want to know if do a search in internet and find such stuffs about economics. There are to much. A single book normally is product or follower of only one schools of economics. But are to many. You will find all those only in internet. The same like be in several books. Explained in the needed way by the people which are followers or developers of these. While one book give normally as good thoughts only those of the school that the author of book follow and will find critics about all the other school of thoughts. So if take knowledge from internet you will be able to see everything else out of that only book (whatever can be) with your eyes and with your mind and not with that of the author of the book (whatever can be). Or better even with the eyes and the mind of every author. And will be (can be) you yourself to like or choose what seems more convincent. Wikipedia for example is a good source. But it is only one and (with much probability) might not be enough.

Then don't forget: a book is hard to be understand. It is not so in internet.

Search for some Warren Buffet investing books. "The power of compounding" will be taught in many of those books.

Here are some of my favorites to recommend:

Economics in One Lesson, Henry Hazlitt

Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy, Joseph Schumpeter

The Armchair Economist, Steven Landsburg

The Mystery of Capital, Hernando de Soto

By the way, Magnr, I have been a customer for a few months and have been pleased so far.

I would recommend Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. It is about financial independence and building wealth through investing real estate etc.

The only ones who build wealth from books are their authors (and even that is not given), lol. This doesn't mean that there are no good books, though...

Ooooh, I like this topic.

Origins of the Crash by Roger Lowenstein

The Great Crash 1929 by John Kenneth Galbraith

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Edwin Lefevre

Investment Analysis and Portfolio Management (textbook, a great one) by Frank Reilly

I could go on and on, as I have a hadron for economics and finance.  Only in an amateur sense, of course, and none of the above books have anything to do with bitcoin.  Still, I loved these books.

While one book give normally as good thoughts only those of the school that the author of book follow and will find critics about all the other school of thoughts. So if take knowledge from internet you will be able to see everything else out of that only book (whatever can be) with your eyes and with your mind and not with that of the author of the book (whatever can be).

But it is only one and (with much probability) might not be enough.

Then don't forget: a book is hard to be understand. It is not so in internet.

Could you recommend any sources? Researching different schools of thought are great in theory. I'm not sure how easy this would be in practice though.

I used to think the internet was a great source, but I've started to disagree lately. These forums are filled with people who use google to search a term for random articles and immediately think they're experts in that field. The links they find defend their knowledge. In reality, searching provides a way of positively affirming what you believe to be true regardless of if its actually true (Confirmation Bias).

I think that the Internet can be a great tool to learn but I still think that deeper knowledge lies in books. I'd rather read two or three well researched economics books from academics who have dedicated their lives to furthering knowledge in their field. Even better if the books have contrarian views. I would get more value from that rather then poorly written articles from a bunch of journalists and unproven sources of pages written to get as many views as possible.
