Some Disturbing Figures About the Upcoming Banking Crisis
Simon Black
In early 1870, the Kingdom of Prussia and French Empire were about to go to war.  It was one of countless conflicts between the dozens of European kingdoms and empires throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, and this one was over before it even started.  Prussia’s military might was legendary.
