Reviews of The Money Men: Capitalism, Democracy, and the Hundred Years' War Over the American Dollar

Money & government

by BruceHH on Mar 15, 2011

Though copyright in 2006 this book encourages thought on the current financial world. Starting with Hamilton, then treating Bibble, Gould, Cooke and Morgan in turn, H.W. Brands provides insight into the financial world. Each of these men fought for a strong central monetary control authority. In his epilogue the author posits that the current (2006) controllers of money were in the main anonymous (with the exception of Alan Greenspan). Perhaps when the real history of the 2008 financial crises is revealed we will find who really controls government, the people or Wall Street.
