This book, originally published in 1932, presents a cosmology of a mass delusion which affects the mentality of the world. This takes place following World War I where the Federal Reserve System, for the first time, allowed flexible currency.

The names of the players are different, but these cautionary essays about massive national debt--written in the long wake of World War I and as the Great Depression was starting to make its horrible power fully known--are still fully applicable today.
A powerful libertarian voice of the early 20th century, Garet Garrett, writing originally in the Saturday Evening Post, warned about the extension of American credit to a Europe staggering under a massive debt leftover from the financing of World War I... a situation echoed, if reversed, today as the overextended United States continues her rampant borrowing.
Collected in book form, Garrett's writings are a cry for a retreat from financial insanity, a clear-eyed look at a complicated and little understood era of financial history, and perhaps an ominous warning for today.About the Author:
