As another financial crisis makes headlines today, the year 1929 remains the benchmark for true economic mayhem. Ahamed lays the blame for the 1929 meltdown on a small number of central bankers--men as prominent in their time as Alan Greenspan is today.
From the Publisher:
Argues that the stock-market crash of 1929 and subsequent Depression era occurred as a result of poor decisions on the part of four bankers from England, France, New York and Germany who jointly attempted to reconstruct international finance by reinstating the gold standard. Reprint. A best-selling book.
THE LORDS OF FINANCE profiles the four powerful, often stealthy central bankers who restructured the post-World War I global economy: Montagu Collet Norman, Benjamin Strong, Hjalmar Schacht, and Émile Moreau. This engrossing historical account chronicles their impact, along with that of influential economist John Maynard Keynes, and unravels the events that led to the Great Depression. While offering a colorful view of the real-world cast of characters, Liaquat Ahamed, investment adviser and former World Bank economist, also accessibly outlines the overwhelming complexity of such a financial crisis and the sometimes well-intentioned decisions along the way. Winner of the 2009 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award and selected by the New York Times Book Review as one of the 10 Best Books of 2009.
