Wealth, Poverty And Politics By Thomas Sowell

Famed economist and syndicated columnist Thomas Sowell have authored more than 30 books on topics related to economics, public policy, history, class, culture, education, and race. A professor with a doctorate from the University of Chicago, Thomas Sowell is largely considered to be one of the most influential American economists of the 21st century. In Wealth, Poverty and Politics, Thomas Sowell conveys the nuts and bolts of free-market economic theory against the backdrop of modern debates on income inequality and public policy, which he argues often underplay the production of wealth as a factor. 

Thomas Sowell goes through the hype about the importance of human capital and productivity that is, making something that saves thousands or millions of lives or relieves the toil of living vs. the over-discussed and unproven hypothesis about victimhood and equality of outcomes. Great examples about ageism, the perils of isolation, and the fluctuations of cultures across time.
