Book Interview: Dying of Money: Lessons of the Great German and American Inflations

August 9, 2023 – In a special reprise edition of the Financial Sense Newshour, Jim speaks with Ronald Marcks, who under the penname Jens O. Parsson wrote Dying of Money in 1974 as double-digit inflation was heating up in the US. In his book, Mr. Marcks wrote of the German inflation of 1914-1923, and the rise of the American inflation of the late 1960s into the 1970s. Jim and Mr. Marcks discuss the parallels of Weimar Germany to what is happening today. They also discuss the phenomenon that every burst of monetary inflation has been followed by a stock market rise and boom in prosperity and every contraction by a stock market fall and recession. Mr. Marcks sees a “latent inflation” in the US, as the money supply has increased much faster than prices for the last three decades.
