Econ 101 reading

Again I've been slow to blog so in place of a real post (interesting news coming soon), I'll give a couple of tips on reading for anyone off to study Economics or Management in the coming years:

1) The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World by Alan Greenspan
This is a fascinating book which is surprisingly well written considering an economist had a big part in the creation of it! If you want an overview of how the modern world economy works at a high level and the implications on the major economies of various govermental polices, this would be a great place to start.
The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World
2) Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt - only just picked this up but it seems a great read from page one and comes with a strong recommendation from someone I respect a great deal.
Economics in One Lesson: 50th Anniversary Edition
