Publisher's Summary

How the wealthy and powerful abuse finance to skim immense profits

Debasement of the dollar as a result of ill-use of leverage is destroying the global economy, and in Leverage, well known market commentator Karl Denninger follows the path of money throughout history to prove that currencies are debased when moneyed and powerful interests pull the levers of government and policy to enrich themselves at the expense of the masses. The result is ugly: the value of everything - including gold - falls, and even personal safety is at risk in a world where there is limited money even for essentials like food and fuel. History is littered with the collapse of monetary and economic systems from Rome to Germany to Zimbabwe.

  • Shows how, if imbalances are not corrected, financial crises will reoccur again and again
  • Authored by Karl Denninger, who has been running the popular website The Market Ticker since 2007

Eh

Any additional comments?

This book is just a bunch of very opinionated commentary. I didn't really learn anything and disagree with a lot of the statements. I wanted to learn about leverage but just listened to a ramble against it.
