Zen and the Art of Funk Capitalism: A General Theory of
Fallibility by Karun Philip
I haven't read it yet, but it looks like classic INTP thinking,
and also interesting.
Here is the blurb about it on Amazon:
This book provides a new explanation of why capitalism succeeds
where it does, yet fails to achieve universal welfare as its
most vocal proponents claim it ought to. By looking at the
issue of the meta-knowledge problem -- how disadvantaged people
do not know how to find out what knowledge is valuable, where
to acquire it, and how to finance it -- the book discovers the
core reason for enduring poverty of entire communities. The
book starts with a core axiom that knowledge is fallible (and
meta-knowledge even more so) and discusses the implications of
that for ideas in welfare, education, entrepreneurship,
banking, law, ethics and religion.
In its Appendix, entitled "A Rationalist's Guide to Religion"
the book provides an interpretation of the world's major faiths
in light of the fallibility axiom.
Not content with using a single principle to explain capitalism,
poverty and wealth, the author throws in religion as well.
