Jay | 2 comments The US starts printing more money because an economic advisor to the President is convinced economic woes can be eliminated by increasing monetary supply. Runaway inflation results, chaos. Eventually at the end of the book they go back on the gold standard.

Jay | 2 comments I just read the plot synopsis. Sounds creepy! It's not the book. In this book, the US creates inflation by its own policy. There's some sleazy movie producer in it, some of it is in LA, New York. Wish I could remember more.
