Mickey Fulp – “Book Review: The Money Revelation By: Alfred Lansburgh (“Argentarius”) Translation by Maik Enders and Bob Moriarty”






June 6, 2022



The Money Revelation is a remarkable trilogy of short books, written from 1920 to 1923 during the Weimar inflationary destruction of post-war Germany’s economy. The subjects are as relevant today as 100 years ago.



“Argentarius” was the author’s pseudonym and in Latin, means banker or money changer. The three books are entitled “Money”, “Value”, and “Monetary Emergency”. They were written as a series of 32 short letters from the Jewish-German banker to his son and discussed the concepts and fundamentals of money, value, international trade, and inflation. The author’s economic philosophy was founded on classic liberalism, the gold standard, and sound monetary policy.



The English translation is by Maik Enders, a German financial consultant, and the well-known pundit and my friend, Bob Moriarty. It is impeccable in clarity, grammar, and syntax.



That is not to imply it is an easy breezy read. Suffice to say, the aforementioned subjects are complex and philosophical and akin to a textbook assignment in an upper-level, university economics class.



That said, business schools in the English-speaking world are immersed in Keynesian, Monetarist, and/or the latest in economics pseudo-science: “Modern Monetary Theory”. I submit that few academicians would dare approach monetary science thru the author’s lens or choose to assign these treatises to a class.



In this time of exponential creation of fiat money, unfathomable debt, rampant price inflation, negative real interest rates, cultural and social turmoil, and forever wars, I highly recommend Alfred Lansburgh’s 246-page treatise to both professionals and lay students of monetary science.



Two search engines (not google!) revealed the hardcover book is available on amazon only; price is US $26.



O Gold! I still prefer thee unto paper,
Which makes bank credit like a bark of vapour.
