Another good economics ebook

Recently I wrote about a short new electronic book by Tyler Cowen, The Great Stagnation, which discussed technology and the economy.

I am now reading another ebook, Race Against the Machine: How the Digital Revolution is Accelerating Innovation, Driving Productivity and Irresistibly Transforming Employment and the Economy. The topic is something else RAW wrote about, how technology affects employment.

Tyler includes it in his list of the best economic books of the year ("Second best eBook of the year," presumably behind Tyler's own.)  More here.

2 books mentioned in Illuminatus!

True Civilisation: Josiah Warren.

Mutual Banking: William B. Greene.

They can be found at

"During the nineteenth century many anarchists and individualists attempted to issue low-interest or
no-interest private currencies. Mutual Banking, by Colonel William Greene, and True Civilization,
by Josiah Warren, are records of two such attempts, by their instigators."
