Boek cover When Money Dies van Adam Fergusson (Paperback)
The Nightmare of Deficit Spending, Devaluation, and Hyperinflation in Weimar Germany
When Money Dies is the classic history of what happens when a nation's currency depreciates beyond recovery. In 1923, with its currency effectively worthless (the exchange rate in December of that year was one dollar to 4,200,000,000,000 marks), the German republic was all but reduced to a barter economy. Expensive cigars, artworks, and jewels were routinely exchanged for staples such as bread a cinema ticket could be bought for a lump of coal and a bottle of paraffin for a silk shirt. People watched helplessly as their life savings disappeared and their loved ones starved. Germany's...

Boek cover Das Ende des Geldes van Adam Fergusson (Hardcover)
Hyperinflation und ihre Folgen für die Menschen am Beispiel der Weimarer Republik
Der Autor verbrachte hunderte Stunden in Archiven verschiedener Länder, um diese außergewöhnliche Dokumentation aus der Zeit der Weimarer Republik zu Papier zu bringen. In den Zwanzigerjahren des vorherigen Jahrhunderts war Deutschland nicht in der Lage, die Reparationszahlungen für den Ersten Weltkrieg zu leisten.

Boek cover When Money Dies van Adam Fergusson (Onbekend)
The Nightmare of Deficit Spending, Devaluation, and Hyperinflation in Weimar Germany
Germany in 1914 had one of the world's most prosperous economies. By 1923 its currency, the Mark, was worth next to nothing. When Money Dies tells the story in stark human terms of what happens when a currency and a national economy perishes. Germany increased the circulation of the Mark to finance a series of staggering war reparations from World War I. The Mark depreciated at an astronomical rate. In November 1921, the Mark was at 250 to the dollar. By the following November, it was at 8,000 to the dollar. By January 1923 it was well over 50,000 to the dollar, and by July of the same year,...

Boek cover When Money Dies van Adam Fergusson (Onbekend)
The Nightmare of the Weimar Hyper-inflation
A history of the hyper-inflation of Weimar Germany, which asks some worryingly relevant questions, such as how does a society and its citizens react to the destruction of its money, and how can a country's finances spin so totally out of control that no-one can halt the headlong plunge into the abyss? 'The narrative has its own compelling pace - the pace of runaway inflation' - The Guardian

Boek cover Refutation of the Mistatements and Calumnies Contained in Mr Lockharts Life of Sir Walter Scott, Bart Respecting the Messrs Ballantyne (1838) van James Ballantyne (Paperback)
Together with the Ballantyne-Humbug Handled in a Letter to Sir Adam Fergusson, and Reply to Mr Lockhart's Pamphlet
The first (seven-volume) edition of the Memoirs of the Life of Sir Walter Scott, written by his son-in-law J.D. Lockhart and published in 1837, was flawed. Before a revised edition appeared in 1839, the Ballantyne family issued a pamphlet refuting the accuracy of the circumstances surrounding the failure of their joint business. This prompted an immediate answer from Lockhart, which in turn was answered by the Ballantynes - with fascinating detailed Company Accounts to support their position. All three pamphlets are brought together in this volume.
