Have you seen the full range of No-Nonsense Guides?
What exactly is money and what does it do? We might understand coins, notes and gold bars, but do we really understand how credit default swaps and sovereign wealth funds work? With penetrating historical analysis and demystifying language, this guide exposes the flaws in the system that led to financial disaster.
He reveals that this is not just a failure of banking, it is a crisis of money. A combination of deregulation, incompetence and greed has created the conditions for boom and bust. This book not on;y provides an understanding of these factors, but also offers strategies for taking them out of the equation so money can be brought back under control, to serve the people rather than banks.

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
Peter Stalker's concise explanation of the money crisis does an excellent job of deconstructing finance.
I do enjoy your magazine - it provides a good balance to a lot of the right-wing / conservative and pro-big-business-dominated media.
If you would like to know something about what's actually going on, rather than what people would like you to think was going on, then read the New Internationalist.
The New Internationalist magazine is the most brilliant advocate on behalf of the developing world. It's a source of information; it's a source of reassurance on ideas; and it has an enormous integrity.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
