    When I first read this book in the early 1980s, it was a commentary explanation on current events The re read in 2019 is a study of history In both cases it is educational, perhaps evenso now with the advantage of hindsight Global finance is the pinnacle of economic complexity, but the pseudonymous Adam Smith the real George J W Goodman describes to us how we are all affected by its machinations, even when we do not wittingly participate in what others daringly play as a game For When I first read this book in the early 1980s, it was a commentary explanation on current events The re read in 2019 is a study of history In both cases it is educational, perhaps evenso now with the advantage of hindsight Global finance is the pinnacle of economic complexity, but the pseudonymous Adam Smith the real George J W Goodman describes to us how we are all affected by its machinations, even when we do not wittingly participate in what others daringly play as a game For that matter, the complexity includes the original Adam Smith s invisible hand that guides each individual acting on his own behalf to unwittingly contribute to global results.When we buy a house, or gasoline for our car, or borrow money for either, we participate Meanwhile, our purchases or rates of interest on our loan are priced according to the demand for same by every other individual with equal access to the purchases But this book is not as dry sounding as the two previous sentences The author tells the story in particulars such as how and why OPEC came to be, and then made its members rich beyond their wildest dreams And then he walks us through the processes of international money exchange especially its exchange for oil, the crucial commodity for keeping an industrial world functioning.At publication time in 1981 the US was experiencing a money inflation spiral, and no one knew where it would lead The author ends his narrative with a declaration of uncertainty Now that we can fill in the blank of what did happen between then and now, we can appreciate eventhe story told in this book Unfortunately, understanding the complexity, we still cannot foresee the future

    This book offers a good explanation of why houses, oil and various other necessities have been priced the way they have been for the past 30 years.
