Wealth of States: More Ways to Enhance Freedom, Opportunity and Growth A great book! The authors explain how even states with small populations can benefit with the right policies. Also, watch the video with one of the authors, Arthur B. Laffer best known for the Laffer curve – a theory showing a theoretical relationship between rates of taxation and the resulting levels of government revenue.
Interesting and inspiring.
Termites of the State: Why Complexity Leads to Inequality, by Vito Tanzi (a former senior official at the International Monetary Fund)…. “a fascinating discussion of why government may sometimes aggravate the problems which they are set to solve”.
