New Paperback Quantity Available: 9. Seller Rating:. The penultimate chapter, on railway expansion, particularly deserves praise for throwing new light upon the correct balance between the London and Paris Houses. The text is illustrated with graphs, tables, diagrams and figures; some sources are transcribed in the appendixes. Yet, if Ferguson suceeds in unmasking tales of financial tricks and in debunking myths and conspiracy theories, he seems more at ease with conspicuity, architecture, diplomacy and dynastic politics than with finance, failing to grasp, as most Rothschild detractors, how the Rothschilds created value.
But a reader who falsely assumed the Rothschilds could only thrive in a bullish market would probably remain mistaken. A sketch of the post diversification, one third in treasury bonds, one third in bills of exchange, leaves one third remaining, despite a brief mention of securities. Nothing is said about liquidity ratios, reserve policies, passive composition whose was the money?
Underwriting is mentioned, not explained; relationships with clients, almost forgotten; the servicing of European aristocracy and top bourgeoisie seems reduced to private banking for, and personal lending to, politicians. Despite the unanswered questions, I do recommend the book. I did not finish reading this book.
While I usually consume books in a day or two, I picked up this book several times and couldn't get hooked. I think I read about 50 pages, and it was too much background without enough story substance. I know this is historical non-fiction, but some books in this genre are written like a novel.
