The “Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World” is an international economics book that examined the five Nations. Michael Lewis is the author of this best-selling book. Lewis has worked for The Spectator, the New York Times Magazines as a columnist for Bloomberg and a senior editor and campaign correspondent to The New Republic. Michael Lewis examined the five nations in this book. They are Iceland, Greece, Ireland, Germany, and the US. In Iceland, Mr. Lewis found overconfidence in its society to be at fault. This was due to the mentality, of overconfidence, of a fisherman in that country that so permeated that nation’s psyche.In Greece, the problem was that society was unable to govern itself. In Ireland, the problem was newly found wealth. Ireland has historically been a poor nation but with so much wealth being made so quickly society just did not know how to deal with.

“This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate” is a very informative book that explains the current carbon-climate problem. The author of this best-selling book is Naomi Klein. She is one of the best organizers and authors of Canada’s Leap Manifesto. In November 2016, she was awarded Australia’s prestigious Sydney peace prize. Naomi was invited to speak at the Vatican to help lunch Pope Francis’s historic encyclical on ecology. “This Change Everything” was an instant New York Times bestseller book and is translated into over 25 languages. Naomi insists in this book, that our capitalism must change in order to slow global warming. She provides suggestions for how this might be solved, but it will bother for those peoples who love their air conditioning, cars, and air travel. They are typically interested in preserving their own wealth and power. It is clear from scientific evidence that human activity associated with fossil fuels has created the problem. If we take action on this critical problem then we can replace fossil fuels with environmentally safe renewable sources of energy. It will also create many jobs and redistribute wealth. If we fail or lazy to act soon we will not be able to stop the heating up of our planet and the results will be horrible. In short, “This Changes Everything” has a fair assessment of the research regarding climate change and global warming.

The “Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy” is a great book that describes Economic policy. Raghuram G. Rajan is the author of this book. Raghuram is the Eric J. Gleacher Distinguished Service Professor of Finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund. Rajan is a great thinker who is willing to challenge the economics establishment on its ridiculous assumptions. His points are argued better than others. The author highlights clearly how well-intentioned government intervention to promote housing for low earners contributed significantly to the subprime boom. A reader without a strong understanding of basic economic theory is not going to get much out of this. So I would recommend this book to all who have knowledge about Economics. Each topic is covered clearly and concisely and packed with the details that you learn to be truly effective. Fault Lines takes a higher ground and attempts to provide some guidance toward an economic future. To sum it up, Fault Lines is an informative book that describes Economic policy.

“SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes, and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance” is a good book, it promotes creativity and thinking outside of the box. Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J Dubner are the authors of this amazing book. SuperFreakonomics takes the basic, intellectual economics book and adds a witty and enjoyable tone that makes the basic concepts of economics accessible to the average person. Levitt and Dubner use various real-world examples that not only illustrate certain economic behaviors but also draw in the reader with the stories themselves. Every statistic in this book is intriguing and informative. The book Superfreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes & why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance is a non-fiction economic book written by D. Levitt & J. Dubner, published in 2009. These two authors show non-fiction writing in a different light and how people will only do things best if rewarded with an incentive. They do not just write facts about a person, place, or activity these authors give us a story with connections, facts, real evidence, and real people. They show how even a street prostitute from Chicago can go through college debt-free, hide it from her loved ones, and start a career in being a real estate agent. They also talk about global warming having a solution that works called geoengineering, and they compare the deaths of those drunk driving and drunk walking and explain how it’s more deadly to walk intoxicated than drive intoxicated. This story shines a different light because we are seeing how people and stats are included in scenarios and how economists look at situations. For example, they bring up chemotherapy, which is very expensive, but not very effective. People are still dying and millions of dollars are going to cancer every year, but where is the money going to. You learn about that in this book and how every dollar does count for those who do survive and benefit from chemo. Levitt and Dubner give many other examples of cheap fixes, misunderstood results, and interesting incentives. Read this factual, entertaining, counterintuitive book to find out what they are. Overall, the theme of the intended consequences and surprising effects of various public policies holds true and makes for a compelling read.
