    It is commonly believed that the Great Depression that began in 1929 resulted from a confluence of events beyond any one person's or government's control. In fact, as Liaquat Ahamed reveals, it was the decisions made by a small number of central bankers that were the primary cause of the economic meltdown, the effects of which set the stage for World War II and reverberated for decades.

    Toru says: "interesting insight into interwar period!"
    "Great Narration"
    Overall

    I thought this was a very well researched book, and it gives an interesting picture of what was going on with the global economy, mostly starting with WWI and leading up into the great depression. It's main focus is on the gold standard.

    I was really impressed by the narrator of this book - he really understood the material, and was able to do the accents of different characters in the book without making it too obtrusive. It's a long book but I think it could have seemed even longer without a good narrator. It was done very well.
