Richard C. Cook’s review of my book, The End of Money and the Future of Civilization, combines some of my main points with his own insightful observations, and has stirred up a lot of interest. Besides appearing on his own website, the review has been picked up by a number of others, including Global Research, The Market Oracle, Dandelion Salad, After Downing Street, Snuffy Smith’s Blog, and Disident Voice.
Cook’s own work is worth following closely. He a former federal government analyst who writes on public policy issues. His website is www.richardccook.com. His latest book is We Hold These Truths: The Hope of Monetary Reform (Tendril Press, 2009). His career included service with the U.S. Civil Service Commission, the Food and Drug Administration, the Carter White House, NASA, and the U.S. Treasury Department. He also taught history at the Field School in Washington, D.C., and owned and operated an organic farm for 10 years while commuting to work from rural Virginia.
