Product description

Review

 “Bitcoin has no owner, no authority that can decide on its fate. It is owned by the crowd, its users. And it now has a track record of several years, enough for it to be an animal in its own right. Its mere existence is an insurance policy that will remind governments that the last object the establishment could control, namely, the currency, is no longer their monopoly. This gives us, the crowd, an insurance policy against an Orwellian future.”

–From the foreword by Nassim Nicholas Taleb --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From the Publisher

SAIFEDEAN AMMOUS, PD, is a Professor of Economics at the Lebanese American University, and member of the Center on Capitalism and Society at Columbia University. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book of the year
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 August 2018
I haven't even finished this book yet but I know that it's one of the best books I have ever read, and I read quite a lot of economics, bitcoin and finance. I usually don't leave comments on Amazon but felt like I want more people to read this. I am now surprised that I have never before come across a condensed book of economics that resonates so much with observations I have made about the financial and economic world of today.

Truly an eye opening book, especially the first half of it. If you can even borrow it from a friend, I recommend you do.

I got the audible version as well as paperback. Will sit nicely next to Mises in my library.

The book was first ordered by my friend to my address as he lives abroad and was planning to pick it up in a couple of weeks. I expected a slightly boring book with some propoganda, like Dr Julian Hosp's one, but I was pleasantly surprised to be very wrong. I ordered my own copy immediately.
