5.0 out of 5 stars Inflation? No problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars An interesting topic badly written, 22 July 2001
Schacht - the subject of this book was far more than Hitler's Banker having also previously been responsible for rescuing Germany from its great inflation. The subject matter is fascinating but unfortunately the author is not a good writer and the book reads more like a series of summaries of articles and books he has read than a connected narrative. It is peppered with trivialities and low grade home-spun philosophy - not worthy of the subject matter. The cover claims endorsement by Tom Woolf which is why I bought it. Since he is a brilliant writer I find it hard to believe the quote is genuine. Unfortunately this seems to be the only book available on the topic at present.
