Interesting economic reading

Sometimes I get very frustrated with my writing progress. I feeI I have nothing interesting to tell. To cheer myself up I think of friends who have been thankful for reading tips I gave them. So if it is my game to read and forward, I will just start off sharing electronically as well:
suggestions of September 2012
Jason Fried: REWORK – A very inspiring hands on book. You want to start your own company immediately after reading this book. Zwinkerndes Smiley
Diamond: Collapse – A (very long) book about how civilizations have destroyed (or survived) their environment before and today. Diamond gives thoughtful account over how humans caused and handled environmental change.

suggestions of August 2012

Phillip Coelho wrote a paper on fashion being a status good. "Toward an Eonomic Theory of fashion" (1993). He models the cycles in fashion as a result of its status good nature. Interesting, insightful and a pleasant writing style.
