    The author has a knack for taking a dry subject and making it as interesting as a historical novel. This is a witty and interesting recount of the great men who changed Western economy in the early twentieth century and during World War I. It also offers a striking parallel to our own sudden economic failure. I put the book down and understood economic policy. Definitely a must-read for anyone concerned with the present crisis.
