Book Review: Money, Wealth and War


http://www.amazon.com/Money-Wealth-War-Robert-Shuler-ebook/dp/B00UIPW4E2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1430920650&sr=8-1&keywords=money+wealth+and+war 
Ever wonder how our monetary policy developed over time? I mean a looonngg time? Author Robert Schuler gives a history of how money developed and influenced in trade and war. I’m a huge history buff and married to one of the rare (according to Schuler) men who  has a degree in both economics and history, so this book was right up my alley. While I don’t profess to be an expert I found Schuler’s explanation intriguing, if a little academic for the uninitiated, but still really interesting. I think that applying it to personal finance is a bit of a stretch, although I loved the focus on building intergenerational wealth, as I think this is a sorely overlooked priority in most western mindsets. If you want your paradigm challenged and enjoy historical context don’t pass this one up!
