Adam Fergusson    

British Journalist, Author & Conservative Party Politician

Adam Fergusson is a British journalist, author and Conservative Party politician who served one term in the European Parliament as an MEP. He has remained involved in the field of European Union affairs since, as a Special Adviser to Conservative governments and as a business consultant.

Fergusson served as a Member of the European Parliament for West Strathclyde (1979-1984), Special Adviser to Geoffrey Howe at the Foreign Office on Europe (1984-1989) and consultant on European affairs for corporations including Time Warner, Mitsubishi and Richemont.

Among other books, Fergusson wrote When Money Dies, a classic account of hyperinflation in the Weimar Republic. It deals with not only the economic impacts that hyperinflation had upon society in the Weimar Republic, but also the way that society itself changed. Societal norms were broken down in the wake of hyperinflation, and Fergusson approaches this topic. First published in 1975, the book was hailed as a cult classic in the wake of the Financial crisis of 2007–2008, with copies changing hands on eBay for up to $1,000.
