    I am surprised that you do not mention Empire of Debt : The Rise Of An Epic Financial Crisis by Bill Bonner and Addison Wiggin in the Economics section.

    Tommorow’s Gold by Marc Faber gives an interesting perspective on business cycles.

    Predators Ball by Connie Bruck. It’s a great read, especially following a good read of Liar’s Poker, which you mentioned.

    Charles Ellis ‘Winning the losers game’ for its definition of investment policy and why we each need one.

    “Ahead of the Curve: A Commonsense Guide to Forecasting Business and Market Cycles ” by Joseph Ellis. I’m wondering how this compares to “Beating the Business Cycle”…
