Paper Money
Paper Money
By Adam Smith
Summit Books, 1981, 335 pp

Like the first Adam Smith, this one writes about important issues, in the present case oil, inflation, real values and the economic system. Unlike his predecessor, this one is a bit short on prescriptions, though he is vivid about what happens if nothing changes. Good research and interviews, provocative writing and an eye for detail make this a most attractive account of an unattractive state of affairs.
