My Political Economic Thought class is currently reading Stossel. His "No They Can't" book is timely and well-written. I highly recommend it. The next (and final) book we're reading is Nudge, by the liberal economists Thaler and Sunstein. That will be the 10th book they've read. With authors ranging from Friedman to Krugman and Stiglitz to Sowell, I think the students have received a good overview of different sides of the political spectrum.
This video is from John Stossel's show and it's about six months old. Once again, since I just found it, it's new to me.
I especially like the discussion of Great Depression - it is 100% spot-on!
