Economics books Watch
Have you just got your GCSE results? You need to read more than just the Economist and Ft etc. Some book recs: freakonomics (and super), road to serfdom, grave new world, nudge, tf&s (of course) and grave new world (my fav).
Thanks yeah I just got my results back, so I thought it would be a good idea to start preparing, I really have no idea what I'm doing though, I just know that I want to do economics.
I saw on your other post how good your results were- congrats! It is fine to not have much background knowledge of economics starting the a level course- you'll pick it up quickly. To ease yourself in maybe just buy a copy of the economist (FT subscription should be free once school starts- i'm sure your econ teacher will bring it up). I'd rec thinking fast and slow first once you start as I think its managable at this stage (not too advanced terminology)- either way its one of the holy grails you have to read anyways so you might as well do it now
