Why Austrian Investing Is Important In The Era Of State Imposed Fiat Money

In sum, this book is to date the most comprehensive attempt at a critical examination of today’s investment universe from the perspective of the Austrian School and deriving conclusions for investors from it. To this end, we frequently move back and forth between theory and current practice. The difficulty of connecting these two worlds will become clear to the reader as the book progresses: the relationship between taking the time for slow and deliberate reflection and the pressure and urgency that characterize investing in financial markets under distorted and volatile circumstances.
