definitely recommend this book..

This is a book that shows just how powerful the richest bankers in the country are and how the playing field is set to give a large advantage to the rich. They make up the rules.

This book very helpful!!!

Author is the most prolific writter when it comes to monetary history and theory. A true master of monetary theory always asked the most irritating questions about government intervention.
