There's a major panel discussion going on today in Washington, D.C. called "The Next Stage," in which economists are coming together to discuss the problems facing America, from unemployment rates to the mortgage crisis to the Obama administration's economic policy as a whole.
Over here at HuffPost Books, the panel inspired us to create a list of some of the best and most important books by economists. We hope this will shed light on the history of our country's economic policies and the point that we've come to now.
Vote on the books you think are the most important, and leave your own suggestions in the comments section below.
