The Ascent of Money
Buddy, can you spare a dime? How about 100 billion? In The Ascent of Money, visionary historian Niall Ferguson led viewers on a global trek through the history of money. As the world struggled to find its footing after the financial meltdown, Ferguson explored how the system of global finance evolved over the centuries, how money has shaped the course of human affairs, and how the mechanics of this economic system work to create seemingly unlimited wealth -- or catastrophic loss.
