I am particularly fond of the classic work on the issue of liberty and socialism by Frederic Bastiat.  Bastiat was a renowned economist and defender of economic liberty.  The Law is less than 80 pages long but is a wonderful place to start if you are searching for a new way of looking at how government uses our money.
