Spring semester readings

Among other things, below are some of the books I will be reading and studying this semester:

  1. A critique of “stakeholder capitalism”: The Profit Motive by Steven Bainbridge (more details here, via Volokh);
  2. An introduction to category theory, the cover of which is pictured below: The Joy of Abstraction by Eugenia Cheng (more details here, via Azimuth);
  3. A “short history of what we live by”, which was recommended to me by Stephen Carter: Rules by Lorraine Daston (more details here, via Next Big Idea Club);
  4. A collection of essays about Adam Smith: Smithian Morals by Dan Klein (an open access version is available here);
  5. A defense of classical liberalism by one of my favorite Latin American authors (in Spanish): La llamada del tribu by Mario Vargas Llosa (a translation to English is also available here); and
  6. A history of mid-19th century accounting and finance clerks: Accounting for Capitalism: The World the Clerk Made by Michael Zakim (more details here, via the London School of Economics).
