This book was an easy read with many interesting insights into the revolving door between Wall Street investment banks and the U.S. Executive Branch particularly the State Department. Some of the interesting tidbits I learned:

Who purchased the shares of the defunct French company that went bust by failing to build the Panama Canal and how they benefited from inside information of the U.S. plans to take the project over.

Why years later the U.S. gave the Panama Canal back to Panama and who benefited on Wall Street.

WWII and the battle to go to war in the Pacific vs. Europe. Who wanted to fight Japan and who wanted to fight Germany?

The Cowboys and the Yankees.

Various coups instigated by the CIA for the benefit of corporations

After reading this book you will realize that the more things change the more they stay the same. This book is a great launching point for the following books:

The Imperial Cruise: A Secret History of Empire and War
The Yankee and Cowboy War: Conspiracies from Dallas to Watergate
The Wise Men: Six Friends and the World They Made with a new introduction by the authors

This book is amazing in that it traces the government - power business elite connections from the 1800's through to the 1970's and 1980's.

It was amazing to learn that there were three camps in which all banking elite came from:
--Rockefeller
--Morgan (JP Morgan)
--Loeb

Individuals (if you could call them that) were either a Rockefeller, Morgan, or Loeb person on how they went about doing business.

I always knew that members of government were connected, but never at this level.

In addition, this book goes on to show how these business elite's positioned the government for war because they knew that it would be "good for business".

I would definitely recommend this book, but watch out, this read may increase your anger level.

This book is a true revelation. From the first glance it gives you the full perspective of the monetary establishment. M. Rothbard as a student of Ludwig von Mises continiues the legacy of promoting the idea of the true free market, and true capitalism away from any kind of government intervention!!!

In the 1800s everybody knew nd understood the workings of the banking system and especially how it was used to finance wars. Everybody should read this book, if only to understand what is happening right now
