Man vs Money: Understanding the curious economics that power our world
Where is all the money? : How does a country go bust? : Should I get paid in Bitcoin?
Wherever you go, whatever you do, however you live your life, money plays a role.
Getting it, keeping it and making more out of it has been one of man rsquo:s major preoccupations for the past five thousand years. From buying a sandwich to earning a wage, going on holiday to playing the lottery, how money and economics governs our world is fascinating. And it rsquo:s just about to get more curious: the arrival of modern banking, crowd funding, investments at the touch of a smartphone and virtual currencies means, for many of us, it is even more complex.
Stewart Cowley distils these complexities in this essential guide to modern-day money and our relationship with it. Along the way we discover how the statistics that govern our world are based on guesswork, why stock markets are like a wandering drunken man, what you need to live like a millionaire and why cooking has made man the dominant species on the planet.
Man vs Money shows you how understanding a little more economics can improve your life.
