99% of All You Need to Know About MONEY and its Effect Upon the Economy (2008) Everything flows from the way the money system is handled. It is the cause of inflation, of depressions, of any sudden changes in the economy. Not one person in a thousand really understands what money is. And yet, there are few subjects in the world more fascinating than the study of money. A proper grasp of it will give you the key that unlocks the many puzzles of national economic events. Without that understanding, it’s impossible to think for oneself; instead, you’re forced to rely upon the superficial conclusions of people with conflicting opinions and credentials. This short book covers 99% of all you need to know about money and its effect upon the economy. It's the clearest and most extensive explanation of how the government money system works and perverts the free market.
