Review by everfresh1
I found this book uneven. I liked very convincing historical perspective (some facts that I didn't know about). I was bored in the beginning by currency war simulation description - seems like totally useless exercise and a waste of taxpayers money. I was skeptical about some generalizations of financial systems provided by author. I was totally convinced by his description of what the future hold. I was annoyed by some obvious biases in author's description of some government intervention in the past - not all was wrong. Overall, it's a very useful book that everybody should read, despite its shortcomings. I will definitely be looking at Fed's activities in a different light now.
