I consider this work an extension of authors before me. If you'd like to meet some of them, you might consider reading:

Dying of Money - Jens O. Parsson
Government Bullies - Rand Paul
Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds - McKay
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator - Edwin LeFevre
The Beginning of the End - Michael T. Snuder
The Creature from Jekyll Island- G. Edward Griffin
Why Government is the Problem
- Milton Friedman

If you know some other books that belong on this list, let me know.
