Money: Whence It Came, Where It Went
Money: Whence It Came, Where It Went
By John Kenneth Galbraith
Houghton Mifflin, 1975, 324 pp.

The quaint and rather picturesque history of money lends itself well to Professor Galbraith's lively style and his bent toward the unorthodox and experimental. Direct recollection adds to the restatement of his views of what has gone wrong in the last few decades. International monetary affairs are largely confined to the London Conference of 1933, the building of the Bretton Woods structure and its dilapidation.
