AEIOpeners: Stan Veuger's reading list

An economist by training, Stan A. Veuger specializes in the intersection of economic and political behavior, public finance, banking and macroeconomic policy. In particular, he has researched voter behavior, political activism, banking supervision and the impact of economic policy uncertainty. At AEI, Veuger is concentrating on the political and policy impact of the Tea Party movement, on the relationship between job losses and economic policy uncertainty and on online financial transaction fraud.

"The Discarded Image: An Introduction to Medieval and Renaissance Literature," C.S. Lewis, 1964

An excellent introduction to both medieval thought and to medieval literature that presents the synthesis of the ideas of classical antiquity and newly arrived Christianity that formed the core of the medieval worldview.

"What It Takes," Richard Ben Cramer, 1992

A fascinating account of the 1988 presidential campaign, featuring a highly entertaining appearance by Joe Biden, homeowner.

"El Pozo (The Well)," Juan Carlos Onetti, 1939

Coined the first modern Latin American novel by Maria Vargas Llosa, this metafictive portrayal of isolation and misery presents the struggle its protagonist faces in narrating his story and embracing his narrative. It serves as a good stand-alone first taste of Onetti’s work, most of the rest of which is heavily and intricately interconnected and, as a consequence, somewhat less readily accessible (yet awesome!).
