Adam Smith famously observed that: Little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism, but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice. He might have added sound money as a further requirement. Zimbabwe under Mugabe had none of these, and its citizens paid the price.

It's so easy
For many years, I've periodically peered out of my hovel and thought aloud, "maybe it's time to worry about inflation again." I pile through a book or two on inflation investment strategies, and again, the unease for the dollar's demise fades from view and memory. Well, it's that time again. Maybe THIS TIME will be that time, when it really happens. (Not that I have any panicked sense of it. The world keeps stumbling onto its face so much, it (unbelievably) makes our markets and currency and even politics look good. So far. Well, I take back the politics remark. But at least we have institutional barriers to even that insanity. It seems we can't incur enough stupid unpaid-for insane projects to look bad, next to the rest of the world, that is.) Well, if it is possible for such a contemplation (the looming paper wave of inflation) to be pleasurably met by a book, this IS that book. The ability of this author repeatedly to swoop from complex ideas to simple and oh-so-readable explanations floors me. This is my candidate for guy I would most like to be a close friend of, and have plenty of conversations with. The imaginative scope is big too. Bear in mind, this book is copyrighted 1981. So how's about (in the midst of the quickest and clearest explanation of real estate finance, up to that time, I have ever seen) this little doozy (pg. 85): "Could there be a real estate crash, as there was a stock market crash in 1929?" Dude! Wait 'till I show you 2008! But the real payoff is the way this discussion builds the ability to imagine and anticipate things like that, not the always-silly wish of a reader to have somebody call the top or bottom of anything at a particular time (or palm off one of the endless books predicting "DOW 30,000", looming end of the dollar, "for really REAL this time,") etc., etc. It is also fun to note that the book IS from 1981, and to compare the author's thinking with the rest of the story, that we know. Tings were about to turn, bigtime. This unfashionable book sells for almost pennies and will educate people more about finance than dozens of more recent, flashier, and less effective titles. I only regret it doesn't keep going .... ! It is the perfect bedside read.
classic work
Learn how to use OPM (Other Peoples Money) for any business/retirement purpose. A good primer in Economics!
Adam Smith is a favorite author of mine. Excellent financial writer. Used to watch his PBS tv show. I've read most of his books, and they are all very good reads for financial folks.
This is a great book. Written in '80 (pub date 81) it analyzes the underlying economy that gave rise to the late 70's 'stagflation'. It does not give a prescription for investing in such a period (which appears to be returning) but allows the astute reader to study the economic policies put in place in the 80's that "cured" the country.

The author has a wonderful, positive voice that makes reading this economic text a pleasure.
This book written in the early eighties really spelled out what is happening today in regard to the foreclosures and the price of oil and why it is so high. After reading this book I realize the American Dollar is worthless on the world market. Everyone should read this book!
In the 1970s, the world economy suffered heavily from brutal spikes in the oil price.
One of the culprits was OPEC, which was formed on the model of the 'Texas Railroad Commission'.
The rise in the oil price provoked an enormous wealth transfer from the oil consuming to the oil producing countries.
Moreover, the oil consuming countries were confronted with the choice between higher taxes or printing money and chose for the latter. But in the US, the bill of the Vietnam War was still not paid. It all ended in stagflation, a mighty drop of the dollar (`my swissies') and a real estate bust.

Adam Smith gives us also a brilliant course on the origin of banks and money.

This book reads like a thriller and is a must read for all those interested in the economy of the 1970s in the West.

For an in depth analysis of the oil crises, I highly recommend the book by F. William Engdahl `A Century of War.'
"Adam Smith", author of the engrossing and witty book "The Money Game" and the entertaining, if not enthralling "Supermoney", returns to the scene to write this rather dull treatise on the 1970's.
While he retains a bit of the wit and sparkle of his earlier books, "Smith" becomes quickly bogged down by OPEC, a force he can understand but not comprehend. His understanding comes from the historical perspective - he writes an informative and enlightening, though not entertaining, history of the organization. However, he tends to focus on the purchasing power of the OPEC countries, rather than realizing that OPEC had reached a peak in it's power by the time his book was published. Granted, we cannot expect Mr. Smith to have predicted what would happen to OPEC. On the other hand, he surely cannot have thought that the US would be reduced to supplying military equipment to the new Arabic superpowers (this, he implies, is essentially the only way we can attain anything approaching an import/export balance with Saudi Arabia).
A few chapters are spent on real estate, the market for which Mr. Smith thinks is now controlled by speculators and people attempting to hedge against inflation. He decides that the long bull market in housing has finally ended. Alas for Mr. Smith's reputation, it has yet to do so, with the median price for a home increasing every year since his book was written (as it had done every year before).
Mr. Smith, however, manages to redeem himself near the end of the book, when he makes his stock market prediction. At the time he wrote the book, the Dow was at 900. He predicted that within ten years, it would rise to 2700, an amazingly accurate guess. However, in reading his reasons for a prediction, we can see that his bullishness has almost nothing to do with what actually moved the market. Overall, this book is worthwhile only to the true Adam Smith fanatic or to someone trying to thouroughly research the economic situation of the 1970's.
