Murray Rothbard is one of the Austrian Economists who Rep. Ron Paul puts on his reading list. This book is very technical and requires a lot of concentration to truly understand the causes of the depression and what prolonged the depression.
This book gives an excellent account of causes of the great depression in the 20s. It uncovers banker's corruption, moral suasion, and secrets of Cal and Harding's presidency. There are unfortunately many similarities between the greenspan/bernanke fed and the fed of the 20's.
This book should be required reading for every person elected to our congress.
I have learned so many intesting things from this book. It gives you details and color to events that you have heard of and some that you haven't. It is great framework for understanding the world that you were born into.
I have listened to about 20 books from audible this year and this is the first one that was so good that I felt compelled to tell others. I highly recommend it to anyone.
