Collusion: How Central Bankers Rigged the World Reviews

    During the Introduction and the opening chapters (on Mexico and Brazil), I was caught up in the incredible amount of knowledge that juggernauted its way through the pages. After an overview of what has happened in the world due to the central banks, author Nomi Prins than backtracked a...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. A history of how the big banks caused the financial meltdown of 2008. I don't completely agree with all the author's conclusions, but I felt better informed after I read this. ...

    I would guess a good 98% of this book is just regurgitating news which has been available to all over the past 15-20 years without much comment on the part of the author. This makes the read extremely dry if not a tad wonky. In fact, it is hard to stop from glazing over with the nevere...

    Nomi Prins does a deep dive into the activities of central banks from the 2008 crisis through 2017. It's a difficult (for me!) but very insightful look at how the central bankers went wild with conjuring money and how so little of it caused any real economic growth. It's incredibly wel...

    I read this book after hearing Nomi Prins interviewed by Erik Townsend on the Macrovoices podcast. I thought the interview was fascinating enough that I should read her book. After reading the book, I thought of something I heard said from Patrick O'Shaughnessy (Invest Like the Best po...

    I like Ms. prins' other works, and this is a continuation of the same. She is wary of the bankers at the center of our economies, and this is a good history that shows where things have gone wrong recently (and kudos to her for looking at other central banks than just the Fed. I learne...

    Boy-howdy dense! A treasure of information, but not a lot in the way of a narrative putting it all together for the poor, ignorant reader. I'm generally a reader willing to do the work, and I have a business degree for whatever that's worth, but there so many interest rates, financial ...

    This is a dense read and best done ion small chucks or one chapter per sitting/day. What caused the financial crisis in 2007-8? The direct cause in the United States. Big banks, the stock markets, and elites created the policies and instruments that failed. Collusion by central banks t...

    Unfortunately the author did not tell the story in a chronological manner that made sense. I understand that she tried to tell the story from the perspective of each of the countries she mentioned, but even within each country/chapter she bounced around a lot with dates. ...

    Superbly detailed. Things we need to understand. ...

    very boring required reading ...

    Very good book, get a hold of this one. Powerful new information and rather scary, when you look at the big picture. ...

    Essential read ...

    Immense. Thorough. Reads like a dry reference. ...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. A history of how the big banks caused the financial meltdown of 2008. I don't completely agree with all the author's conclusions, but I felt better informed after I read this. ...

    I would guess a good 98% of this book is just regurgitating news which has been available to all over the past 15-20 years without much comment on the part of the author. This makes the read extremely dry if not a tad wonky. In fact, it is hard to stop from glazing over with the nevere...

    Nomi Prins does a deep dive into the activities of central banks from the 2008 crisis through 2017. It's a difficult (for me!) but very insightful look at how the central bankers went wild with conjuring money and how so little of it caused any real economic growth. It's incredibly wel...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. A history of how the big banks caused the financial meltdown of 2008. I don't completely agree with all the author's conclusions, but I felt better informed after I read this. ...

    I would guess a good 98% of this book is just regurgitating news which has been available to all over the past 15-20 years without much comment on the part of the author. This makes the read extremely dry if not a tad wonky. In fact, it is hard to stop from glazing over with the nevere...

    Nomi Prins does a deep dive into the activities of central banks from the 2008 crisis through 2017. It's a difficult (for me!) but very insightful look at how the central bankers went wild with conjuring money and how so little of it caused any real economic growth. It's incredibly wel...

    I read this book after hearing Nomi Prins interviewed by Erik Townsend on the Macrovoices podcast. I thought the interview was fascinating enough that I should read her book. After reading the book, I thought of something I heard said from Patrick O'Shaughnessy (Invest Like the Best po...

    I like Ms. prins' other works, and this is a continuation of the same. She is wary of the bankers at the center of our economies, and this is a good history that shows where things have gone wrong recently (and kudos to her for looking at other central banks than just the Fed. I learne...

    Boy-howdy dense! A treasure of information, but not a lot in the way of a narrative putting it all together for the poor, ignorant reader. I'm generally a reader willing to do the work, and I have a business degree for whatever that's worth, but there so many interest rates, financial ...

    This is a dense read and best done ion small chucks or one chapter per sitting/day. What caused the financial crisis in 2007-8? The direct cause in the United States. Big banks, the stock markets, and elites created the policies and instruments that failed. Collusion by central banks t...

    Unfortunately the author did not tell the story in a chronological manner that made sense. I understand that she tried to tell the story from the perspective of each of the countries she mentioned, but even within each country/chapter she bounced around a lot with dates. ...

    Superbly detailed. Things we need to understand. ...

    very boring required reading ...

    Very good book, get a hold of this one. Powerful new information and rather scary, when you look at the big picture. ...

    Essential read ...

    Immense. Thorough. Reads like a dry reference. ...
