Update (7/15): Apparently the article below was way off base and Mr. Buffett never recommended the book or said what the article says he said, although I still think the 2 books (and the "When Money Dies" article) below could be interesting: http://www.cnbc.com/id/38243922
Thanks to Matt for first passing this along.
Mr Buffett, known as the Sage of Omaha because of his shrewd investments, apparently told friends that When Money Dies illustrated what could happen today if European governments attempt to spend their way out of the downturn.
Written in 1975 by Adam Fergusson, a one-time adviser to Tory minister Lord Howe, the book charts how the German economy was ruined by hyperinflation after the Weimar government allowed public spending to run out of control.
After Mr Buffett tipped off a Dutch financier friend about the wisdom of Fergusson's analysis, his book became the talk of right-wing blogs and economics websites, with copies changing hands for up to £1,600.
