- History is not what we are taught. Here is a book that will turn
everything you learn about economic thoughts on its head. It all
did start with the Greeks, but Chinese, Catholics, Spanish
Scholastics, medieval Europeans, the modern nation states all
witnessed the ebb and flow of ideas about economic freedom -
clearly it was no one-way progress. Adam Smith paved the way for
Marxism. There is more startlingly detailed and extensive
discussion about what went through the ancient minds.

- High school is a safe time to let children take risk, fail,
learn, and grow strength of character - or grit. Protective parents
can hurt the child, who may acquire a mentality of entitlement and
not the mental muscles to recover from a fall. This Web list is
inspired by Jennifer Meer's article "My parents let me fail,
which taught me how to live" and Salman Khan's view.

- Austrian economists understand that monopoly is moral when based
on innovation, which can be swept away by the next innovator. But
monopolies become immoral and infinitely sustainable when
governments get involved - through supportive laws, regulations,
and funding. Peter Thiel suggests we should aim for innovative
monopolies that not only create great value but also capture it. To
avoid political envy, the monopoly can be camouflaged by investing
in diverse products, like Google.
