History of Silver, Money & Austrian School of Econ
Where does The Silver Manifesto rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's one of the top 5 books I have read all year. The book covers the history of silver's use as money both in antiquity and in modern times. Silver's supply and demand is also covered. The book talks about the Austrian theory of the business cycle. If you have a normal background (Keynesian) in business or economics from a prestigious business school you should keep an open mind and listen to this book for a different perspective and to challenge your beliefs about banking, money and how the economy is supposed to function. You may not have heard of some of the terms before or the Austrian School of Economics, but the Austrian School predicted the 1929 stock market crash, the 1970s stagflation, the Dot.com bust and the 2008 housing bubble.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The book is non fiction and besides an extensive history of silver and commodity money, the book talks extensively about the Austrian School of Economics, its theories and the viewpoint of what's going on now in the economy from an Austrian perspective.
Have you listened to any of Ryan Brooks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but the reader is reading very clearly.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The book talks about the misconceptions in academia and the mainstream media and mainstream financial media of deflation. Deflation is NOT evil! I also enjoyed all of the history of money and banking discussed in this book. Many modern financial books neglect going back through the perspective of history to see how now history may not exactly repeat but how it may rhyme now or going forward.
Any additional comments?
This book correctly shows silver's key role throughout history in money and banking systems of many different governments and the long term consequences of governments going onto fiat money and using central banking and fractional reserve banking. If you want to learn about the Austrian School of Economics, the history of money, the supply/demand fundamentals of silver because you own physical silver or precious metal mining stocks or thinking about buying these for insurance or wealth preservation or for investment purposes, you find this book quite enjoyable. Lots of useful information.

At least I finished the whole Book.
Narrator Ryan Brooks: needs practice telling a story vs reading a story. Good Voice
The Subject matter not that memorable.
Im still Silver bullish though. Keep Stacking.
