The “Fault Lines: How Hidden Fractures Still Threaten the World Economy” is a great book that describes Economic policy. Raghuram G. Rajan is the author of this book. Raghuram is the Eric J. Gleacher Distinguished Service Professor of Finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund. Rajan is a great thinker who is willing to challenge the economics establishment on its ridiculous assumptions. His points are argued better than others. The author highlights clearly how well-intentioned government intervention to promote housing for low earners contributed significantly to the subprime boom. A reader without a strong understanding of basic economic theory is not going to get much out of this. So I would recommend this book to all who have knowledge about Economics. Each topic is covered clearly and concisely and packed with the details that you learn to be truly effective. Fault Lines takes a higher ground and attempts to provide some guidance toward an economic future. To sum it up, Fault Lines is an informative book that describes Economic policy.

“The War on Normal People: The Truth About America’s Disappearing Jobs and Why Universal Basic Income Is Our Future” is an amazing book to anyone who is interested to learn more about how we can take on the rise of automation in our economies. Andrew is the author of this classic book. Andrew has written an important, warmly written, comprehensive overview of what is happening in our country due to technology and automation, with a focus on its downside. While one may intuitively sense how social-media has replaced a lot of actual socializing, making it more “efficient,” this same impact shall and is being applied to companies via automation and soon “AI”, which is the subject of Yang’s book. However are people without Master’s Degrees going to work, and how with those with Master’s and above whom cannot be automated by paid? Yang investigates both sides of this coin with his analysis of problems and his intelligent suggestion of a range of debatable solutions. This is an easy read but of substantial real-world weight. It is important for parents and adults as much as for our policy leaders and thinkers because the effects are happening and will expand. Finally, The novel “The War on Normal People by entrepreneur Andrew Yang” describes how the dawn of automation and artificial intelligence will reshape the United States economy and society. He describes in-depth how automation will eliminate the top 5 most common jobs in the United States over the next 15 years. Administrative support is at number 1, Retail at number 2, Food Preparation and Service at number 3, Transportation and Material Moving at number 4, and finally production at number 5. He explains that all of these fields would be drastically altered by artificial intelligence in administrative support and automation in retail, food preparation, transportation, and production. He also describes in detail how automation and artificial intelligence will affect white-collar jobs such as radiologists, corporate lawyers, primary care physicians, and surgeons. This book was written incredibly well. The factual evidence to back up Yang’s claims is enormous allowing the reader to truly comprehend his points and believe his claims. He also provides solutions to the problems that he poses, instead of just stating the issues. His solution, the Freedom Dividend, is extremely well-researched and makes the reader earn for Yang’s new America.
