BTW if anyone is interested in futuristic economic theories or what future progress of economics research and development could represent. A good topic to lookup is thermoeconomics. It models economic principles and theory after the behavior of energy or heat under the laws of thermodynamics. I think that represents the best path for the future if we're discussing what potential best methods for comprehending and stress testing economics theories is.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermoeconomics

Some current economics and financial frameworks are old and obsolete imo. It might be better to look towards the future and what can be achieved trying something different. The potential for innovation and progress in terms of economic theory could be vast. There could be tangible and positive benefits for literally everyone alive which could come from future progress in that area.

The Rise and Fall of American Growth. The book discussed about how artificial intelligence will become a huge part of the economy. Something that we should keep an eye on as we can already observe it presently

My favorite economic book is "The Rise and Fall of American Growth by Robert Gordon": as the author has explained the way of economics differently. I would suggest you check this out.
But i think this topic should be in off-topic
My favorite economics book is Confession of Economic Hit Man by John Perkins. The book is love and really helps you understand the tricks and tactics that America used to take on the world and capture and cash the resources be it oil or coal in different countries.

John Perkins was also threatened for writing the old version. The new version has been given a novelistic touch and has been liked by 91% people across the world.

My favorate economic book is " The Roof to Serfdom" by F.A. Hayek.

The book says a fascinating look into the impact economic policy can have on cultures and human flourishing. This book illustrates how economics bears an impact in the realms of politics and culture.

I am a great fan of Robert Kiyosaki after reading his book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", I believe that this book is not any stereotype material but it is the philosophy that helps us to understand how money works and how we can employ our money by effectively using our time and then that money will make more money for us and on the other hand, we can actually utilise the time in our lives to do the things we always wanted to do. This book will definitely change the traditional dynamics of the economy if this philosophy is adopted on the mass level.

This book also change my perspective about money. I realized that if I want to achieve financial freedom, I cannot achieved it by working for someone else. I need to have multiple sources of income to achieve it so that I can have a passive income so that even if I sleep, I am still earning. Making my money work for me is the key to financial freedom and I should prioritize assets first before expenses. The cash flow quadrant is a big help and my aim is to reach being an investor. Even if some people are sick of hearing it because his advises are use by networking people, it makes sense if you think about it.

Midas touch is also a good book both written by Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump. I have read most of the books by Kiyosaki because I like how he teaches us about our passion and how to handle our finances.

Move this topic to "off-topic".
I'm neither a fan of economics nor reads huge books. I have read a very few books on economics. Among them, Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman is good to me. Things are simple and plain language makes everything clearer what the writer wants to say.

I really enjoyed "The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking" by Saifedean Ammous.

It summarizes most of the important history of money, until the actual days, which includes the benefits of Bitcoin and its application as sound money.

I think "seen from the outside world in economy" is the best book I had ever seen.

There are many books on economics. My favorite book is John Maynard Keynes's General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money. You can look at this. In this, we can gain an understanding of the economy through these books. The knowledge of economic theories can be made a success by the Anokai. Knowledge gained from these books is very important.

I have two favorite books. I have Buffet-ology. Basically it enlightens your optics on time frames and how to value what Monday is to 30 years. Durable competitive advantages and the meat of stocks, the cash flow income statement and balance sheet  cheats.
The other book is Thomas Bukowski. I use to find chart patterns. You still need to know what kind of market you are in, but they do work like a charm if you use them right. His charts are followed by people that win a lot. Most interpret lazily. Check them out,
I came out of buffetology never wanting to invest in a stock without seeing financials. Bukowski showed me how accurate history tends to repeat itself.
Worth both buys. You have to take notes, but it will last a lifetime, nothing beats learning to read financials from buffets perspective
