Dr. Thomas Sowell, a black born in the South at the start of the Great Depression, is now a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. His life story, A Personal Odyssey, should be required reading for every high school student, for it depicts not only his life's struggle but also his brilliancy in offering solutions to many problems facing the world and America today: racism, poverty, education. As a preeminent economist, he does not answer the question "should this policy be implemented?", but rather "if this policy is implemented, will it have the effects you intend?". He has grasped a little known truth: If you correctly identily the problem, you will then be able to solve it. After this get his Basic Economics, a book for the lay person that takes the mystery out of economics -- no charts or graphs, an easy read.
