Liaquat Ahamed presents in his book, Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World that four of the world's central bankers attempted to rebuild the global economy following World War I but instead contributed to the economic collapse that led to the Great Depression. Mr. Ahamed profiles the central bankers from England, Germany, France, and the United States and examines their collective fear of inflation, their interest in the gold standard, and their failed plans to stabilize the international economy. Liaquat Ahamed discusses his book with Gerald Seib, executive Washington editor of The Wall Street Journal. Liaquat Ahamed's Lords of Finance was the 2010 Pulitzer Prize recepient for history.
