Ludwig Erhard is not exactly a household name, either in the world of economics or politics. But this great man was economics minister, and eventually the chancellor of West Germany from after the war until 1966.
His faults mainly lie in the areas of not being a man of detail and his intense dislike of the political 'beast'.
His strengths all focus around his unswerving comittment to free market economics as the prescription for the creation of national wealth and freedom.
This books tells a fascinating story about a fascinating man who was possessed by noble ideas and ideals, and who achieved much.
This book made me antisocial for a couple of days. A great buy!
