“Engrossing and sobering.”
Allen Mattich, Wall Street Journal, October 1, 2010
“One of the most blood chilling economics books I’ve ever read.”
Wall Street Journal, January 30, 2011
“Every body ought to read this book. But baby boomers must.”
”a brilliant account of how Germany's Weimar Republic was consumed by hyperinflation.”
As horrific as the book is this was a great read and well researched.
This book tells the story of the hyperinflation in Weimar Germany and its aftermath (1919-1926) and, to some extent, the ensuing rise of Hitler's Nazi Germany.
This an exhaustively researched book, written by an author who possesses both a clear flair for history writing and a keen grasp of economics.
Brilliant description of the damage wrought by inflation in Germany.
Well worth reading for those interested in understanding how financial systems can go terribly wrong....and at the worst possible time. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Delos D. Harriman
