Unfortunately, 99% of economists, Nobel laureates including, of all persuasions: neoliberal, Keynesian, Austrian, have not caught up to the simple fact that the monetary system is nothing like the gold standard that ruled when the textbooks they learned about money from were written. The erroneous set of beliefs and dogmas (eg. "federal debt is like a household debt") is perpetuated. A small group of economists, known as chartalists or MMT-ers (after Modern Monetary Theory) have figured out the fiat (non gold-related) money. The author of the book is not among them, he discovered this by himself, a true genius. His book is definitely recommended, if you want to understand why some countries go bankrupt and others can run 200% debt-to-GDP ratio and manage to sell massive amounts of bonds despite offering near zero interest.
If you read this book you will see how confused the most famous economists are, how their thinking is muddled by false analogies and unspoken, yet absurd, assumptions.
Obviously, I think it is worth it.
It showed me why we had the recession and the recovery. It showed me why Chairman Greenspan's mistakes were largely responsible for the recession, and how close we were to a depression.
It showed me solutions to the Social Security and Medicare problems.
In short, this is one of the most important books I ever have read, and it made a lot of money for me, too.
This book should be required reading in public schools (and the earlier, the better).
