B0000CNH4C 220 pages. Schacht [1877-1970] "made possible Germany's astounding economic recovery between the wars. He laid the firm economic foundation which enabled Germany to rearm and Hitler to take the initiative in a second world war. In 1939 Hitler dismissed Dr. Schacht for his refusal to permit the Reichsbank to assist in preparations for war. After the war he was held as a political prisoner first by the Americans and then by the Germans, finally being acquitted of complicity with the Nazis at Nuremburg. This is Schacht's own account of his personal experiences, of how he overcame two inflations and warned against a third, the post-war inflation. It is an interesting and revealing document of international high finance, of economic and political maneuvering and duplicity, taken from fifty years of banking. The personality of the author emerges strongly in these pages showing a man completely dedicated and committed to his profession, a man fascinated by the idea, the ethos, of money - its power, for good or evil, to mould the lives of men, and how to harness that power." - dust jacket.
