Editorial Reviews

Review

Dr. Shelton offers here a much-needed education on the historical roots of sound money in America and, in so doing, secures the foundation for real world solutions tailored to the problems our nation faces now. Members of Congress, take note! --Larry Kudlow, Host of CNBC s The Kudlow Report

At once bold and practical, sophisticated and straightforward, this concise study is a must-read for all would-be reformers of our broken monetary system. And in showing us how to fix the dollar, Judy Shelton points the way to deeper principles of reform for our troubled polity and economy. --William Kristol, Editor of The Weekly Standard

In this concise, elegant and irrefutably argued book, Judy Shelton shows exactly how to make the dollar sound again. May the next president of the United States, along with the next secretary of the Treasury, read every word. --James Grant, Editor of Grant's Interest Rate Observer

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By D Lonowski on December 28, 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
In less than 70 pages, the author shows us how our founding fathers viewed money, what they wished for their new nation, and how we steered off course over the generations. It is a short course, easily grasped, not a treatise, not intellectual, but a tutorial. The best resource of its kind I have found - and I've studied most of them. After this, I feel I could explain to a child why sound money does matter. Should be required reading by all American adults.

Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
This book hits the nail on the head. It describes the problem and then offers a solution which is the key. We must take action to limit the control the administration has over the value of the dollar. If not, the dollar will not be the international currency for much longer which will greatly diminish the power of this nation. Do not let us end up like Greece or Europe which is where we are headed at the moment. JFG
