Economics and noodles

Kasha has recently been interested in two topics and wishes to search libraries for books on them.  The first is economics, and the problem with this is that libraries do not house textbooks, and most other books would likely not interest me.  Does anyone who's studied economics at all have any books one might find at a library that they would recommend?  No, books like Freakonomics do not count; I'm interested in education, not entertainment.

The other topic is ramen (ラーメン).  This will probably be a far less troublesome topic, but it is relevant to the title of this post.  There is an H Mart in the area which sells shirataki (しらたき) noodles, which are gluten-free and contain no sugar or starch, only dietary fiber.  (They are also known as yam noodles.)  There shall be much slurping.
