I was thrilled to discover that Detlev Schlichter’s book Paper Money Collapse is not the usual financial tract. It is a very serious work that closely engages Austrian theory and retells its main theoretical and policy points in light of today’s economic mess. It takes a close view of the literature but also has a handle on the big picture of world financial affairs – a big picture that those of us who are involved daily in the endless march of daily events tend to miss. I found his writing very compelling and logical. Overall, it is a high-quality work that draws very heavily on the masters to explain the world trajectory of events. And yes, it is something of a scary book too/
The book is one of those perfect timed things. It is selling like crazy on Amazon. The reviews have been great. He has been all over the media. It is just released and it is gaining steam day by day.
In any case, I’m thrilled that the Mises Academy is hosting an event with the author tonight. It should be extremely interesting, and it is your chance to ask him questions and get his take on the current events. Register for this and stay ahead of the curve.
