Jews and Money By Abraham H. Foxman | Palgrave Macmillan | 256 pages | $26

A Google search of the words “Jews and money” reveals a strange list of entries. First is Calvin College’s “German Propaganda archive” with a historical article entitled “Money Is the God of the Jews.” Next is a column at Jewcy.com about “Why Jews make more money and win more Nobel Prizes” by Rabbi Levi Brackman. Other top entries are from the anti-Semitic website Jewwatch.com and a link to a book by Jerry Muller, Capitalism and the Jews.
