“Policymakers, economists, investors—everyone—should read and reread Gold: The Once and Future Money by Nathan Lewis (John Wiley & Sons, $27.95). It’s worth its weight in gold—and then some. If all grasped its basic conclusions, the world would be an infinitely richer and happier place.” Read the book review here. Steve Forbes
“This book is a fascinating historical read; I had a hard time putting it down. It is rigorous in its articulation of the economic principles involved. And it is timely, given the fact that virtually the entire global currency structure is untethered to gold or any other commodity.”
