“The Wordly Philosophers” by Robert Heilbroner

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Books, Personal Finance

Worldly Philosophers

I just finished “The Wordly Philosophers” by Robert Heilbroner. It is a very interesting book that looks into the lives and teachings of great economists like Adam Smith, Carl Marx and focuses on their lives and how their every day life has influenced their theories.

This book does not provide any practical steps on how to become a great economist or any other secrets. It reviews the theories of these people that have shaped the world today. Therefore, you might wonder why I review it.

The reason why I decided to write about it is because it can help you with achieving wealth. It is one of the practical steps that I decided to take; to start learning about the market and the forces that govern it. This is what the book is all about. I can say that after reading it, I have a better understanding of why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. In addition, it explains why people have been buying land since the ancient times and why entrepreneurs are so crucial in the modern world. I think that this understanding helps me when I make decisions about investments.

I would recommend reading this book if you seek an understanding on how the financial system works and how you can gain from it. I would like to point out that this book has little practical steps, but give you an understanding of the markets. If you like the book you can buy it from here.

Follow the practical way,
