Dr. Detlef Gloge is provocative and incisively honest. This short biography cannot do proper credit to him or his extraordinary books. An economist by trade, he worries about wealth inequality, economic stagnation, and the growing crescendo of public frustration.

He has spent decades observing the worsening monetary conditions and researching how banks’ regressive tax creates irrevocable wealth disparity by harming the most vulnerable members of society.

Despite his twenty years as an economist, Dr. Gloge has maintained an uncompromising independence from the dissonance and confusion of the economic field. His common sense and independent mind-set probably stem from his experience as an engineer and a mathematician. Six dozen publications and patents bear his name. The Bell Laboratories team that he led deployed the first prototype internet links. He is a fellow of engineering and scientific societies in the United States.

 These successes have shaped Dr. Gloge’s desire to repay his country by joining those who openly express their concern for its future and recommend changes. The themes that he highlights in this book emerged in his earlier books, How Not to Make Money and Money Forensics. This third book, Rigged Money, is his most unreserved, candid exposition of the surreptitious harm and inequity practiced by today’s creators of money.

 This work is an important contribution to the realm of new economic thinking, which many economists consider fundamental for meeting the needs of the modern age.
