I highly recommend watching the presented interviews with Dr. Thomas Sowell
Thomas Sowell (born in June, 1930) is an American economist, historian, social commentator and a rational thinker. He’s had an enormous influence in my thinking over the years.
Even his personal story is an inspiration:
Sowell grew up in Harlem, New York. He had some difficulties growing up and eventually dropped out of High School. He would later join the Marine Corps during the Korean War.
Once he got back to America, he enrolled and got accepted into Harvard University to study economics, and later graduated magna cum laude in 1958. In 1959 he got his master’s degree from Columbia University, and finally earned his doctorate in economics from the University of Chicago in 1968.
He’s taught in multiple universities and been a part of many think tanks over the years. He also worked at the Hoover Institution
