Willem's best book sofar. A very clear and well researched book describing how our actual system of over indebtness is, over time, not sustainable. The book, analyzing the slow decline of the world supremacy of the USA monetary and reserve currency system, leads to the same conclusion, but written from an economic point of view, as the famous book "The Clash of Civilzations of the late Harvard professor Samuel Huntington. It reads like a roman, with a kind of suspension and a good feel for history. Lots of ommon sense, no difficult economic theories. It is certainly not written by a gold bug, but by somebody who very well describes the definiton and role of money in general and precious metals' like golds' role in the money system over the last 6000 years.
