This book, as the other reviews state, is about a pattern of rising and falling prices that runs throughout history. One of the most important central theses is that prices for food and other commodities are linked to the climate and that one of the first signs things are about to go wrong is a prolonged period of inflation. This book is extremely important for anyone who wants to understand today predicament, the future of food crises or the possible effect of climate change on society.
