Subtitle: Austrian Investing in a Distorted World, Wiley, NYC, 2013, 332 pgs., index, endnotes.


Reviewer Comment - This is a very difficult book, but because it is crammed with unusual concepts. It is important and worth study. The author does digress into many tangents that will help with understanding. The author's purpose is to develop a practical method for individual investors to apply Austrian School economic concepts to investing today. In the process he also presents a devistating critique of the falicies of Keynesian economics and the disasterous results we experience now due to the FED and government application of Keynes's concepts to manipulate the market.
