I went down a similar road with curiosity and little prior knowledge.

I'll say some of the best resources I found were macroeconomic textbooks on specific economic subjects.

For example I really enjoyed this one for understanding how the fed and the central banking system works broadly.

At a higher level though one of the few non-textbooks I would reccomend is Capital in the 21st Century by Thomas Piketty. It's an introduction and history of many topics and an enjoyable read.
