After the First World War, these central bankers attempted to reconstruct the world of international finance Despite their differences, they were united by a common fear that the greatest threat to capitalism was inflation and by a common vision that the solution was to turn back the clock and return the world to the gold standard For a brief period in the mid 1920s, they appeared to have succeeded The world s currencies were stabilized, and capital began flowing freely across the globe But beneath the veneer of boomtown prosperity, cracks started to appear in the financial system The gold standard that all had believed would provide an umbrella of stability proved to be a straitjacket, and the world economy began that terrible downward spiral known as the Great Depression. As yet another period of economic turmoil makes headlines today, the Great Depression and the year 1929 remain the benchmark for true financial mayhem Offering a new understanding of the global nature of financial crises, Lords of Finance is a reminder of the enormous impact that the decisions of central bankers can have, of their fallibility, and of the terrible human consequences that can result when they are wrong.
