  2. The Price of Inequality: How Today’s Divided Society Endangers Our Future by Joseph E. Stiglitz
  3. Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Prosperity, and Poverty by Daron Acemoglu
  4. The Most Powerful Idea in the World: A Story of Steam, Industry and Invention by William Rosen
  5. Tap Dancing to Work by Carol J. Loomis
