*The Alchemists*

The author is Neil Irwin and the subtitle is Three Central Bankers and a World on Fire.  This is very likely a very good book.  If my quick perusal is accurate, I like how Irwin refers to Trichet as “the president of Europe.”  There is also a very interesting chapter on the Swedish central bank of the 17th century.

So is a dollar standard better than a gold standard? Is it a smidge better because there are other currencies? Is the underlying problem the "standard" part?
