9781137371485: Euro Crash: How Asset Price Inflation Destroys the Wealth of Nations

Euro Crash is a unique analysis of the European Monetary Union, arguing that it was not sub-optimal currency areas or profligate government spending but instead fatal flaws in monetary design and an appalling series of policy mistakes by the European Central Bank that lead to the current and ongoing Eurozone crisis.

About the Author:

Brendan Brown is a widely followed market economist practising in London, UK. He has authored many books on international financial topics, including monetary problems in the US, Europe and Japan, and asset market pricing (including exchange rates) in a global context. The books cover both contemporary trends and historical topics. He was awarded a PhD by the London School of Economics and an MBA by the University of Chicago. Dr. Brown is Head of Economic Research and Executive Director at one of the largest Japanese financial institutions. He seeks to apply the teachings of Austrian School economics, distilled with the best of the Chicago tradition, to solving the practical problems of global investment strategy in a world of monetary turmoil. Dr. Brown contributes regularly to Japanese and European financial media.

Review:

Fiat currency central banks claim to fight the inflation they cause, and likewise to offset the financial instability and systemic risk they create. The depreciation of the currencies they issue at will often cause falls in foreign exchange value, goods and services inflation, or asset price inflations. Of these, asset price inflations are the most insidious, for while they last they are highly popular, leading people to think they are growing rich and to run up their debt. When the asset inflations collapse, the central banks can come as the fire department to the fire they stoked. Nobody is better at diagnosing and dissecting these central bank games than Brendan Brown, whether it is the Federal Reserve ( The Global Curse of the Federal Reserve ) or the European Central Bank - this book, Euro Crash . It will give you a healthy boost in your scepticism about those who pretend to be the Platonic guardians of the financial system.' - Alex J. Pollock, Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute, Washington, DC; former president and chief executive officer, Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago.

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 280 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.5in. x 0.8in.Euro Crash is a unique analysis of the European Monetary Union, arguing that it was not sub-optimal currency areas or profligate government spending but instead fatal flaws in monetary design and an appalling series of policy mistakes by the European Central Bank that lead to the current and ongoing Eurozone crisis. Brendan Brown shows how the inflation-targeting regime established by the ECB right at the start, coupled with the reckless dismantling of the old Bundesbanks monetary framework, contributed decisively to the ensuing gross failures. Further factors in the fatal cocktail included long-term French monetary nationalism, empowered by a French President at the head of the ECB, and the succumbing of euro officials to the same deflation phobia which had gripped the Federal Reserve. In exploring these themes, Dr. Brown draws on both traditional monetarist and Austrian School economic literature. He demonstrates that the European Sovereign Debt Crisis is in fact the bust phase of a credit bubble which to a critical extent was manufactured in Frankfurts Euro Tower. This revised edition of Euro Crash turns its attention towards the issue of asset price inflations, discussing its origin, how it attacks the economic and financial system, and the role of the central bankers (both in Europe and the US) in intensifying the swings in the temperature of speculative fever. It also includes a brand new chapter on how the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, and ECB President, Draghi, joined in an effective coup during the summer of 2012 against the monetary constitution (in the Maastricht Treaty) and how they prevailed against weak opposition. This book will be of great interest to all those searching for explanations and prescriptions outside the box of conventional thinking and beyond the passing the buck remedies of euro officials. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137371485
