On the book:
“Detlev Schlichter has written a lucid, hard-hitting critique of what he identifies as the world’s twin financial scourges: central banks that produce an elastic supply of paper money and commercial banks that, through the alchemy of ractional-reserve banking, render central bank money many times more elastic. Readers of Paper Money Collapse will, among other things, glean useful insights on how to protect themselves from paper money’s end game: an inflationary meltdown.”
STEVE H. HANKE, Profesor Of Applied Economics, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore
