I have started to try and understand the mysteries of the banking system and this book was a revelation. It gave the history of events for both the British and American systems, the gradual centralisation and the removal of banking constraints to faccilitate the continued boom and bust of bank created inflation of the money system.

It was very clear and easy to read. Sometimes I wonder if banking is closer to a whodunit thriller than dry figures and this book leaves no doubt about how and why political leverage has been applied. Truly excellent and has encouraged me to read further.

This book gives a great insight into our reserve banking system. It shows us how our banking system came into existence, how it works and why we should be worried about it. Rothbard gives an incisive explanation of why reserve banking in its current form is doomed to fail and the ongoing economic crisis underlines that his theories are valid.

This is a very interesting book, well written and explains everything you need to know about banking, fractional reserve banking, how it works etc very clearly. Considering the current financial climate I think it is encumbent upon everyone to get to grips with what's going on and to be able to separate fact from fiction. This is a must read.

This is probably the best intro to the school of Austrian economics and basic financial theory, its really accessible and gives a world class over view of fractional reserve banking and how our modern financial systems work. I found this book to be very accessible and educational and really benefited from reading it and its enjoyable to read and pretty cheap on Kindle too. 5 stars no doubt about it!! Grab it and dig in.
