THE MONEY MEN Capitalism, Democracy, and the Hundred Years' War over the American Dollar

by | Read by Lloyd James

Business & Finance • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Who controls our nation's paper currency? H.W. Brands concentrates on five men -- Alexander Hamilton, Nicholas Biddle, Jay Cooke, Jay Gould, and J.P. Morgan -- who sought that power as he explains how commerce grew in the fledgling nation and U.S. monetary policy was formed. With dramatic stories like that of Jay Gould's manipulation of the gold market, Lloyd James gets to do more than recite facts. He's always easy to listen to, bringing history alive as stories while avoiding melodrama and making sure the facts come across. THE MONEY MEN makes the topic of economics understandable and interesting, relating it to overall trends in American history. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
