Excellent This is not a personal finance book, but rather a deeply informative book about what money is and how it works, what banks are and how they work and what happens when they stop working it even goes a little bit into why that happens This naturally includes a lot of difficult concepts such as inflation, deflation, central banking i.
e The Fed , Bitcoin and etc which are explained in a fun, humorous, easy to understand way, without an obvious political bias and with a positive outlook that didn t leave me cowering in fear about the future, but without downplaying the serious issues the world faces in the future such as the precarious situation between China and the U.
S.
Great nutshell economic history, but not much discussion about the debates about all of these things It s billed as an explanation, but many of these principles are hotly contested and are by no means settled principles But it s still worth a read.
This is not a get rich quick book It s a book about money not wealth.
Have you ever wondered about inflation, deflation, the federal reserve, financial crises including the recession in 2008 Then this book is for you It s fun It s witty It s concrete and easy to understand It s most of all just a great read.
I ended up following Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve on Twitter because of this book It s because I can see how interesting money is and what role it plays in our modern lives.
Probably 4 stars for the layperson, I get a lot of exposure to monetary policy at work That said, author does a fine job explaining fiat money, prices inflation, central banks, and exchange rates His explanation of the Great Depression France hoarded gold while the US had tight monetary policy, causing an artificial shortage of reserves includes the example of George Bailey in It s a Wonderful Life which is quite relevant and accurate In the US, there wasn t enough currency to go around, and as a result businesses, people, and even governments accepted scrip IOUs or even common goods The segment on the 2008 financial crisis is strong and succinct It is worth borrowing this book for that segment alone, and calls out how Fed Chair Bernanke had a background in the mistakes made during the depression, which guided him I like the book for its neat overview on multiple fronts which include but not limited to Inflation, Euro, US China and Bitcoin Most of the book was interesting with the help of analogies, I liked the way he explains things in a simple way because this is a dry subject to some and it can get bland easily I, however, have to disagree with his assessment on Bitcoin, I think Bitcoin is here to stay and thrive as it is decentralized and valuable.
Good structure and organization and the author is very good at explaining complicated things in a simple way.
