I first noticed the brains and talent in R. Christopher Whalen in 2007. I was a trader at Lehman and every time I saw Chris on CNBC I was blown away by his straight forward common sense approach to the inner workings of the world of modern finance. Chris called many ills of the financial crisis over a year before they happened. He’s made me a lot of money on more than one occasion. His book is much like his personality and intellect. He traces the deep roots of our financial system soiled years ago and brings them right into the 21st century. The book is a MUST read for anyone in finance or someone who wants to learn how we got here. I really like the way the book ties together a behind the scenes look in Washington and Wall St. The book should be required reading for every Federal Reserve board governor as well, lets learn from history instead of repeating it. Buy “Inflated” it’s a great read.
-Lawrence G. McDonald, New York Times Best Selling Author of “A Colossal Failure of Common Sense – The Inside Story of the Collapse of Lehman Brothers”
In this December 1776 pamphlet The Crisis, Thomas Paine famously said, “These are the times that try men’s souls.” He then proceeded to lay out a detailed assessment of America’s military challenges in ﬁghting the British. But after the ﬁghting was over, America faced the task of creating a new, independent state separate from British trade and especially independent from the banks of the City of London. The story of money and debt in America is the chronicle of how a fragment of the British empire broke off in the late 1700s and supplanted and surpassed Great Britain in economic terms by the end of WWI. Though Britain for centuries was the dominant economic system in the world, America would come to lead the global economy by the early twentieth century. The English pound was not the ﬁrst great global currency, nor will the dollar likely be the last. Mankind has been through cycles of inﬂation and deﬂation more than once, going back to before Greek and Roman times. The story of money in each society is a description of the ebb and ﬂow of these states in economic as well as social terms.
