Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I did have some problems with this book.Besides letters to and from Stillman,the author seems to get most of her info from a couple of sources.I don't know how she did with novels,but this is supposed to be non-fiction.I think the title is appropriate though.Let Stillman sit for this story.This book was written in the "Roaring 20's."The economy is expanding and bankers could get a sympathetic hearing now.Unlike John Pierpont Morgan,James Stillman went to France.These people were part of the "Money Trust."This author is not a muckraker.This story doesn't need to be updated.It only needs to be better researched.These people were possibly still fresh in their minds in 1927.They just repealed the sunset provision in The Federal Reserve Act of 1913.Now?It shows one thing though.Banking was,and still is,the business of the "richest" commodity-money.It's not a natural resource;but it is an accepted social convention.
