Blog Post #8: The Magic of the Dewey Decimal System

For the rest of my life, one number will stay with me for the rest of my life. It was both a horror, and a salvation. 330. What is so special about 330? 330 is the Dewey Decimal System number for Economics. And it is a BROAD topic. I even managed to find a book from the late 1800’s that concerned the economic impacts of how a master treated their slaves.

Finding actual books in the library turned out to be more work than I anticipated, but it was a lot of fun. I would hardly realize 40 minutes had passed before I found my books. All together, I got two books on the history of economics between China and the U.S., and another book about the history of Debt in the U.S., and our current policies concerning it.

These books look like they are going to be very helpful. It is going to be interesting trying to work my way through them over the next week, looking for information.
