Item description

A sweeping historical epic that traces the development and evolution of one of humankind's greatest inventions and explores how we understand-and misunderstand-its meaning and its use: from its origins in the ancient world to the gold standard, from Adam Smith to the shadow banking system and the Great Recession. What is money, and how does it work? In this major work of economic history, Felix Martin-an associate of the Soros Institute for New Economic Thinking-challenges nothing less than our conventional understanding of money. He describes how the Western idea of money emerged from interactions between Mesopotamia and ancient Greece and was shaped over the centuries by tensions between sovereigns and the emerging middle classes. He explores the world's complicated monetary systems, from the Pacific island of Yap, where value is measured in immovable stones to the currency that exists solely on globally connected computer screens. Martin shows that money has always been a deeply political instrument, and that it is our failure to remember this that led to the problems in our banking system and thus to the Great Recession; he concludes with practical solutions to our current, pressing, money-based problems. This is a magisterial work of history and economics, with profound implications for the world today. From ancient currency to Adam Smith, from the gold standard to shadow banking and the Great Recession: a sweeping historical epic that traces the development and evolution of one of humankind s greatest inventions. What is money, and how does it work? In this tour de force of political, cultural and economic history, Felix Martin challenges nothing less than our conventional understanding of money.
