There are a number of “Must Read” BOOKS I’d like to add to this list, one of which was mentioned in a comment below: It’s entitled: “The Tyranny of the Majority by Lani Guinier. More info about that book may appear here in the future. Also of note are the three books on our financial mess by Nomi Prins.
