This book is very well thought out and well written. This book is not a long read, I finished it in a couple hours, but it is packed with tidbits of information about Edison's life, from his early childhood to the legacy he left behind

This book is very well thought out and well written. Its full of awesome facts about Edison, most of which i didnt know and im now glad to know about Him. Its a great read with some pictures. This book is not a long read, I finished it in a couple hours, but it is packed with tidbits of information about Edison's life, from his early childhood to the legacy he left behind. Some of this information I wasn't aware of, and I like learning new things. The author's no-fluff writing style is welcomed, but not boring or terse.

The World Economy brings together two reference works by Angus Maddison: The World Economy: A Millennial Perspective, first published in 2001 and The World Economy: Historical Statistics, published in 2003. The figures (in this book) are enriching economists' understanding of what make economies grow, and may even make it possible to reject some of the most prominent historical explanations.

Rapid price inflation followed by deflation presents people with serious problems. Wealth can be lost or gained due to circumstances beyond one's control. These episodes accompany and follow wars; they also may occur due to policy miscalculations and other shocks to an economy.In 1921, following WWI, the American inventor Thomas Edison turned his focus and intelligence to the problem of engineering money with stable purchasing power, one that would 'cast the variable out of money'. His goal was that the nation's money would once and forever, represent the stable and enduring value of America's productive might.Edison's experience is a fascinating story of the search for 'stable money', and it provides lessons for modern readers on what stable money might look like and why present economies still experience inflationary-deflationary whipsaws.
