Everyone loves to argue about politics and economics, you just have to drink a couple of glasses or collect more than three people with higher education in a chat room.

Moreover, all disputes are more emotional, and economic knowledge and awareness of historical examples are simply shameful. When adult men in ties discuss the news, more often than not they look like grandmothers on a bench because GDP cannot be distinguished from GNI. Yes, they often confuse revenue with profit.

So I shoveled some interesting books and I got a whole notebook of notes on the history of capitalism. And I will publish them. I am sure that the presence of at least general knowledge is important for understanding current economic trends.

💎 History affects the present because it informs us of the results of earlier decisions. Especially we often hear historical references from our politicians and managers.

When you learn that the advanced capitalist countries developed the fastest in history between the 1950s and 1970s, when there were many restrictive rules and high taxes, you will immediately be skeptical of the claim that stimulating growth requires tax cuts and elimination bureaucratic obstacles.

💎 History helps to understand how limited modern economic theory is. And that global decisions are often made on very shaky grounds.

Life is often much stranger than fiction. There are many examples in history of successful economic experience (countries, companies, private individuals) that cannot be explained by any single theory.

Say, most likely you only heard about Singapore’s free trade policy and its approving attitude towards foreign investment. Thus, you believe that Singapore's economic success proves that free trade and a free market represent the best solution for economic development.

However, all land in Singapore is owned by the government, 85 percent of the housing is provided by real estate agencies owned by the government (Housing Council), and 22 percent of the national product is produced by state-owned enterprises (the global average is around 10 percent).

Not a single economic school has offered us such a cool combination of a free market and government regulation.

In general, I hope it will be interesting.
