About the event
Welcome Sowell Brothers!
Welcome to the first monthly get together for Sowell Brothers, a reading and discussion group for works by the author, Thomas Sowell. Thomas Sowell is an out of the box thinker, challenging public conceptions on race, politics and culture. He is currently a Senior Fellow of Public Policy at the Hoover Insitution and has published dozens of books. Many of these books are available on Audio and free through the public library system. Our first book will be "Basic Economics: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy."
Our discussion will take place in the Shakespeare Garden in Golden Gate Park. It's secluded and private which means it can be a bit tricky to find. I urge you to bring blankets for sitting on as well as drinks/snacks. We'll start with a brief introduction at 2 PM and get into a friendly discussion shortly afterward. Notes are lovely, but not needed. You're welcome to bring well behaved pets, friends and significant others. All perspectives are welcome on the condition of good faith and calm condition (good vibes).
Please be curtious to others in speech and distancing. For questions, reach out to Ari@AriZahav.com.
All the best,
Basic Economics: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy
Thomas Sowell explains the principles of economics in plain jargon for the general public, answering questions like: Why are homeless people sleeping on the sidewalks of New York in the winter, when the abandoned apartment buildings have four times as many dwelling units as there are homeless people in the city? Why did Russians have to import food to feed people in Moscow, when Russia itself had vast amounts of some of the richest farmland in Europe?
