Product Description:

THE ASCENT OF MONEY analyzes 2008's widescale financial crisis from a historical perspective, looking back at the earliest days of the global credit markets. Featuring input from leading scholars and experts such as George Soros and Paul Volker, the program breaks down complicated economic theories into easy-to-grasp concepts.

Description by PBS Video:

In THE ASCENT OF MONEY, Ferguson – whose series War of the World garnered critical attention last summer – traces the evolution of money and demonstrates that financial history is the essential back-story behind all history. “Everyone needs to understand the complex history of money and our relationship to it,” he says. “By learning how societies have continually created and survived financial crises, we can find solid solutions to today's worldwide economic emergency.” As he traverses historic financial hot spots around the world, Ferguson illuminates fundamental economic concepts and speaks with leading experts in the financial world.
