Friday Movie Night - The Ascent of Money Edition

hot buttered popcorn It's Friday Night! Party Time!   Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!

 

This week is Economist and Historian Niall Ferguson's 6 part PBS documentary The Ascent of Money. Niall Ferguson goes through the history of finance and also shows globalization is not new, but simply a very old game, revised. Dr. Ferguson has a book of the same title.
