He also discusses the threats to capitalism arising from it. His previous book, Money for Nothing, correctly anticipated the financial crisis and has received a lot of acclaim. This followed the success of The Death of Inflation, published in 1996, which became a best-seller and was subsequently translated into nine different languages. Initially considered too extreme, The Death of Inflation is now recognised as prophetic. Roger is also co-author of the book Theory of Money, and he is the author of Index-Linked Gilts.
