Ep. 83: Inflation Bookshelf
So often, the Inflation Guy is asked to recommend a good book on inflation. Just one? That's crazy. There are oodles of good books on inflation, and in this episode the Inflation Guy recommends eight. Okay, one of the recommendations was less-than-enthusiastic. But these are all worth reading. Listen to the podcast, and visit the links below to see the books in Amazon or other site. [erratum - Inflation Guy in this episode refers to the author of Economics as Robert Samuelson. He obviously misspoke because no reasonably-educated economics student wouldn't know that Economics was written by Paul Samuelson, who won a Nobel Prize by the way. Also William D. Nordhaus, who did not.] NOTES Podcast Callback: Ep. 15: An Interview with Special Guest Milton Friedman Books Referred to: Fiat Money Inflation in France, Andrew Dickson White, 1933 (free pdf) When Money Dies, Adam Fergusson, 2010 Inflated: How Money and Debt Built the American Dream, R.
