From the advent by way of Joseph Salerno:

And one will research even more approximately financial background from interpreting this intriguing tale than from poring over reams of statistical research. even though its 5 components have been written individually, this quantity provides a relative built-in narrative, with little or no overlap, that sweeps throughout 3 1000s years of U.S. financial history."
