As many of you know, I’m a fan of Steven Landsburg’s economics. He regularly has articles in MSN SLate and today a new one appeared.

What I Like About Scrooge – In praise of misers. By Steven E. Landsburg

It starts off a bit off target, if you ask me, but upon reaching the end I was once again impressed by his general concepts and teaching ability.

For the first time in a long time, I’m actually interested in learning more about economics. Does anyone have any good economics books that they can suggest? I’ve read Landsburg’s “the armchair economist” and I give it 3 stars. But I’m looking for a more theoretical economics book.

Any suggestions? Nonfiction please.
