CRASHMAKER serves up page after page of legal, Constitutional and economic arguments for the gold standard and truly limited government.
In CRASHMAKER we sail the high seas of global finance and economics with ports-of-call in Constitutional and natural law, monetary history and policy, environmental wackoes, conspiracy theories and the role of morality in daily life. Frankly, to do a proper job of reviewing this tome requires an advanced education in law and economics. Undaunted, I will proceed with my own amateurish efforts. As the authors themselves put it, "CRASHMAKER challenges the reader - in its themes, its characters, even its style and vocabulary. But by design. For any people capable of self-government deserves and demands something more substantial than politically sanitized intellectual pabulum." (Pgs. iii-iv)
The book's TWO volumes and 1572 pages should not intimidate potential readers as the average chapter length is only 4.5 pages long. This makes any individual chapter a fast read.
At the end of this tome, the discerning reader will reach the inevitable conclusion that it took a great deal of education to write it. I assure you that when it comes to income taxation as well as monetary history and policy that they know the subjects inside out, upside down, forwards and backwards. To share just one example of their breadth of learning, they mention that Spanish churchmen such as Saravia de la Calle, Martín de Azpilcueta and Luis de Molina were the intellectual precursors to the Austrian School of Economics, and that Spanish theologian Francisco de Vitoria was talking about the unalienable individual rights and sovereignty of the people two centuries before Thomas Jefferson, [p. 818].

Anyone who occupies a federally elected office should read this book.

Even though it's a work of fiction, there is enough philosophical, legal and moral substance to justify it's reading as a requirement for occupying a Federal office. Unfortunately, the subject matter may exceed the intellectual capacity of most, whether elected or appointed.

For the average citizen, it's a must for understanding the inner workings of the government and how it evolved from a decentralized weak institution to the powerful Leviathan that dominates all.

I only received volume two and Amazon's response is that I can return it for a refund. Amazon knows about this problem. This is a mis-leading listing. I received pages 713 thru 1,572. I did NOT receive 1,572 pages.

This novel is a two-volume set. I ordered my set back in February, 2013. Amazon Fulfillment shipped one volume. I have contacted Amazon three times now and no response to my request for the first volume. Second volume starts with page 723. Hard to read 2nd volume without the First. And, I paid $$$ for the set and received half the order. Think about this before you order. If Amazon posts this report with no customer support, then Amazon doesn't give a damn about my problem, and perhaps yours too.
