Najboljše ekonomske knjige zadnjih dveh let

Spodaj je spisek knjig, ki so okupirale moj kindle in mi krajšale čas letošnje leto. Knjige, ki se jih absolutno splača prebrati, če želite razumeti sebe in druge, zakaj smo takšni (neracionalni), kot smo in zakaj so posledice naših odločitev včasih samo simpatično neracionalne, včasih pa privedejo do hudih katastrof. Pa tudi knjige, ki se jih absolutno splača prebrati, če želite razumeti aktualno gospodarsko situacijo, zakaj smo v njej, kakšne so rešitve in zakaj nekateri nočejo takšnih rešitev.
