This anon here, I will go ahead and post what I have been reading.

Stabilizing An Unstable Economy by Hyman Minksy.

Capitalizing on Crisis by Greta R. Krippner.

Irrational Exuberance by Robert J. Shiller.

A Brief History of Neoliberalism by David Harvey.

Any of these books should help you to understand finance and financial crisis as a sociopolitical phenomenon. The Harvey and Krippner books are particularly easy to read for a newcomer.

I would also read about Keynes, not directly because he is difficult to comprehend for a neophyte, but through second-hand material:

Introduction to the Theory of Employment by Joan Robinson.

A Guide to Keynes by Alvin Hansen.

If you want to understand the minutiae of equity trading from the financier's perspective, I recommend the following:

The Psychology of Investing by John R. Nofsinger.

Quality Investing by Torkell T. Eide, Lawrence A. Cunningham, and Patrick Hargreaves

Bear in mind that the two books above are fairly uncritical politically speaking, but the Nofsinger book is especially interesting as it will give you a sort of precursory understanding of behavioural finance.

Don't bother reading economics 101 textbooks or Sowell or any of those guys. They barely ever engage with finance and if they do, they do so in an idiotic manner. Classical economics barely acknowledges finance at all outside of a Say's Law interpretation of finance as a self-equalising capital market (aka efficient market theory).

Marxian economists generally have very intriguing and novel theories of finance but they are difficult to understand, especially for newcomers, and they tend to engage with finance on this super-lofty level of finance as a historical stage of long-term economic cycles (Arrighi, Sweezy). If you're interested in Marxian economics or economics from a more "historical" approach, then, by all means, check them out.

It's not the amount, it's the return that is impressive. You are probably too dumb to understand finance and economics but to put it in words that you might understand: 400% is a lot when the average trader is lucky to make 10%

I can't imagine the stress of worrying about something so pointless and banal as cryptoshit. It's clearly not digging you people out of the pit of the lower class, the extra funds are superfluous for everyone else at best. I'm guessing you people (God forbid) went to college and are trying to pay off your debts.
