Something has clicked

Something has just clicked in my head and economics has suddenly become fascinating.

So much of it revolves around this central question: is it possible to maximize the interests of a group while still preserving the rights of the individual?

You may well be beyond this level in your understanding of Economics, however I would highly recommend the Economics audiobook courses offered by The Teaching Company.

Economics gives a great overview of the basics, and Legacies of Great Economists is a summation of the lives and works of groundbreaking economists throughout history. The professor is engaging and the subject matter fascinating.

I recommend it partially because the teacher does approach the subject of how to achieve social goals, in an economically sane fashion. Whether that still preserves individual rights is open to debate. However, taking the approach of, if your goal is to accomplish this particular social goal through government, what is a way that we can accomplish it in a way that is effective by taking the market into account?
