a keen look at a hard-to-define institution

the narrator was excellent. The writing was better. The story told was the best.

the Fed is an arcane institution whose function is obscured by jargon that often seems intentionally convoluted. the role of the central bank and the tools at its disposal can seem impenetrable to anyone without concurrent degrees in economics, political science, and finance. This book breaks that barrier and explains the actions by massivley powerful and breathtakingly anonymous people as the world began to unravel in the aftermath pf the housing crisis. highly recommended.

Love the book and her Audible presentation!!

Danielle’s book is excellent and so is her presentation! I learned so much and she kept my attention throughout. I am not an economist, I’m not in banking or finance, but I am interested in the Federal Reserve System going back to the beginning. I’m a bit of a historian I suppose. She has inspired me to continue my study of central banking. Many thanks!

Unbelievable insight into what happened to my money!

Wow! This book provides an eye opening view of the bad egghead decision makers who greedily made bad decisions or lack there of decisions at the Federal Reserve and how it had affected me and my family over the years! A truthful tell all with sighted documentation! Very scary that we put so much trust in the hands of the Feds without proper checks and balances preventing decisions that solve issues for one group but create big one for groups to come. The Feds forgot who they were protecting! Money does enable growth. Don't prevent hard working Americans from well deserved rewards. A must read for all!

Excellent Review Of The 2008/09 Financial Crisis

If you missed the 2008/09 financial crisis or forgot exactly what happened, you should listen to this book. Especially if you have financial exposure to the stock and/or bond markets (i.e., retirement accounts). It's happened before, it will happen again, and next time will be far more devistating than the last.

Required Reading

A lot has been said about the Fed and housing/finance/banking crises, as well as the subsequent actions of those in-charge. What we have seldom heard was an insider’s take on the worldview and framework of those decision-makers, and how their severely flawed understanding of the real world implications of their theory-based decisions and academic experiments contributed to unprecedented risk and destruction of wealth.

Out of all the books out there on this subject, I would rank this as a top 3. Not only is the content outstanding, but the narration and story-telling is great as well.
