Tired of struggling economically? Me too.

George Gilder offers an explanation and a solution: restoring monetary integrity. It’s radical and goes far beyond primitive “supply side economics.” The axis of restored prosperity is “entrepreneurial ingenuity,” founded in all the policies which make that possible, and all that such ingenuity in turn makes possible, even for non-entrepreneurs… including equitable prosperity.

I’m not alone in my admiration for this book. Conjoin the praise of Reaganomics’ co-architect Dr. Arthur Laffer’s “Thirty-five years ago, George Gilder wrote Wealth and Poverty, the bible of the Reagan Revolution. With The Scandal of Money he may have written the road map to the next big boom” with that of Venture Capitalist-In-Chief Peter Thiel’s “Why do we think governments know how to create money? They don’t. George Gilder … is our best guide to our most fundamental economic problems.”

This conjunction gives some idea of the sweeping breadth and towering scope of George Gilder’s new The Scandal of Money: Why Wall Street Recovers But The Economy Never Does. Bonus: you don’t have to be a PhD economist or a preeminent venture capitalist to understand it.
