Few economic subjects are more tangled, more confused than money.

"The House of Morgan" is about the rise, fall, and resurrection of an American banking empire—the House of Morgan.

When BCCI was finally shut down, as much as $15 billion had been lost or stolen—the biggest bank...

The process by which money comes into existence is thoroughly misunderstood, and for good reason: it has been the focus of a highly sophisticated and long-term disinformation campaign that permeates academia, media, and publishing. The complexity of the subject has been intentionally exploited to keep its mysteries hidden. Henry Ford said it best: [blockquote text="It is well that the people...

The IMF and the World Bank, were created at a meeting of global financiers and politicians held at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, in 1944. Their declared objectives were to encourage universal exchange and to settle the trade rates of national currencies. The unannounced objectives were quite different. They were the end of the gold-trade standard as the premise of money...
