Three Books, One Island: Aeon J. Skoble

JANUARY 10, 2013 by AEON SKOBLE

Remember the old thought experiment? "If you were starting over on an island and you had one book, what would it be?" With this new feature, we'll let really interesting people play the game. In our version, however, we'll let the author discuss three books: one recent book, one timeless book, and one book that challenges his or her world view.

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world.

In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
