A Nation of Counterfeiters
Capitalists, Con Men, and the Making of the United StateseBook - 2007
Prior to the Civil War, the United States did not have a single national currency. Instead countless banks issued paper money and counterfeiters flourished. This title casts the country's capitalist roots in a startling new light. Readers will recognize the same get-rich-quick spirit that lives on in the 21st century.
