Show Me the Money
Dorling Kindersley (July 1, 2008)
The world of money can seem a complex and often confusing place. Interest rates, inflation, stocks and shares... it's a bewildering subject that's difficult to unravel.
Alvin Hall cuts through the jargon to explain exactly how finance, economics, and business work.
—how the ancient practice of barter led to today's system of banking
—the different between free trade and fair trade
—how people have won and lost large fortunes
Show Me the Money is full of things to discover, from learning whether the bank really will give you gold for your cash to seeing how ethical trading make a different to people's lives.
