The Critical Reading List / by Jennifer Chan


Hi Everyone,

As many of you know, I like to read (and sometimes write) about the social and economic issues that disproportionately affect poor and working people. As I became more outspoken about these issues, I started noticing an increased amount of interest from readers.

Thus, I have decided to form a “Critical Reading” List.

The List will be sent out on a monthly basis and will comprise of book and article recommendations, particularly from notable advocates, academics and economists.  The content will primarily focus on political and economic theory, as well as social policies that negatively impact low-earners.

Because this is a labour of love, I will not be capitalizing (ha ha) on this project. No Amazon Affiliate links. No sponsored content. Nothing. Depending on its success (or lack thereof), I may set-up a Patreon account so that readers can choose to donate a small amount of money to support my reading habits.

My hope is to eventually cultivate a small, inclusive community of individuals who are curious about the structures that dictate our wages, work and time. Perhaps this will also encourage other bloggers to start sharing their own thoughtful opinions on these issues too - let's all learn together!

Last but not least, if you have any recommendations, please feel free to reach out and I will happily include them in next month's List.

Happy Reading,
