Excellent account and explanation of the era of high price and interest rate inflation that peaked in the early 1980s and which demonstrates that little was learned by the policy makers between then and the more recent financial crisis.

A book that should be read by anyone that is interested in investing in the stock market. The experience of those who lived during this period created unreal expectations of the future for them. The fact that inflation disguised the poor performance of firms through what looked like exceptional profits is quite a surprise.
