Money: How the Destruction of the Dollar Threatens the Global Economy – and What We Can Do About It
About the book:
Few topics are as misunderstood today as the subject of money. Since the U.S. abandoned a gold-linked dollar more than four decades ago, the world’s governments have slid into a dangerous ignorance of the fundamental monetary principles that guided the world’s most successful economies for centuries. Forbes shows how today’s wrong-headed money policies—espoused and enacted by Obama and other heads of state around the world—are now setting the stage for a new global economic and social catastrophe that could rival the recent financial crisis and even the horrors of the 1930s. Forbes explains how the Bernanke/Yellen Federal Reserve and its unstable dollar policies have been accelerating our course toward disaster, and what we can do to stop it.
Steve Forbes explains how a weak dollar is at the heart of many problems today, including:
- The weak economic recovery
- Slower long-term growth and higher unemployment
- High food and fuel prices
- Declining mobility, greater inequality, and the destruction of personal wealth
- Increased volatility and currency crises
- Larger government with higher debt
- Lower levels of business innovation and entrepreneurship

“Economic and monetary policies can be difficult to master for even the savviest politicians. Money effectively communicates these complexities into a cohesive argument for economic recovery and preventing a new financial crisis. Steve Forbes and Elizabeth Ames deliver a gripping read and an intriguing viewpoint on how to get our economy back on track.”
