G20 Reading List

Rowena Mason has a reading list for the G20 leaders.
I'd quickly add:
  • The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope. Speculative finance and moral bankruptcy. [I've just started it. The novel, that is.]
  • The Road by Cormac MacCarthy. Post-disaster journey. Father. Son. Cannibals.
  • A Man in Full by Tom Wolfe. A great intro to Epictetus. Go Stoic!
  • Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. A hard slog with wooden characters, but its sales have shot up and people talk of "going John Galt."
