Description de l’éditeur

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’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’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.
