Good book well presented. A little slow at times but well worth the time to listen to it all.
puts a good perspective on how out of control our government is and how they are playing with our future.
Would recommend reading tis book to anyone who wants a better understanding of our current financial situation.
I am an English teacher in China and can now read and write some Chinese.I have been to 8 countries on 4 continents.I am an avid audiophile and also read a great deal.i play chess,cook,love world music and embrace the outdoors at every opportunity.My favorite listens have all been adventure driven,but I can also appreciate stuff related to science,business and even fiction.
It was quite informative about governments and the many things they do to manipulate money and markets.I think we would all be upset if we knew the kinds of things that are being done to our monetary system.
How the government was doing simulations and using financial experts to guide them.The many technical facts,which were sometimes hard to follow.At least you can always go back and rewind.
Since the charecters in this book were all financial instruments I think the voice was appropriate for the book.
It is quite comprehensive by itself.I don't feel the author left anything for future writing.
Obama is applying this stuff right now with Iran and the oil embargo.Perhaps the U.S. has finally figured out it can't continue to pour money into the military which isn't financially sound.Americans have to deal with all the hyper inflation created by the printing of money and along with that jobs are being replaced by computers.The American leaders need to be financially savvy.We have lost our edge.
Historical & Economic content was superb.

Understanding international monetary policy and the risks associated with unlimited money creation.
Book helped me achieve a higher level of understanding our current international monetary system and the interests of major player within.
Currency Wars is the best audio book that I have every listened to. The performance by Walter Dixon is spectacular and I intend on searching for other narrations by him. The content by James Rickards was exactly what I was looking for since my formal trainings were outside the field of finance, banking, and economics.
Hi. My name is Mann & I am an Enterprise Communications expert by profession. I have always loved reading books and primarily enjoy books on Finance, Science & Technology and History. I do hear an occasional Fictional book though I prefer to read them instead.
Yes. Anyone interested in understanding and making sense of financial events and economic reasoning behind them should find this extremely beneficial read.
The book introduces the readers to the veiled wars on the financial systems of the modern world being waged in the boardrooms of governments.
The depth and historical references of the story.
Yes. Though it gets a little heavy sometimes.

I have made this book mandatory listening for my children.
The first book made me better understand some key issues. Book 2 quickly became somewhat partisan and US politics. A great pity.
Became to see the Marshall Plan (post-WW II) as quantitative easing and loans rather than pure benevolence.
That currency wars can propagate across world like the Spanish Flue.
Book 1 and the first part of Book 2, are greatly recommended. The last part of Book 2 can be reserved for US Partisan Politicos.
No, print is better because of the high quantity of information to follow. This surely is a book that must be read with a pen and a paper to take notes.
The description of the war game is very catch - It would make a great movie.
I only listen to books
I would like to hear anyone's thoughts to this book.
I would like feed back to this book. I live in a isolated area. I would like to hear what others thought of this book. To me it was fascinating and I am watching the markets to see how they go. This time period is following the 1930's to a tee.
