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.

I'm stimulated, excited, saddened and engaged by the people who write for the magazine. Keep up the great and important work.
I have enjoyed reading your magazine since I was 14 years old when I discovered it in my school library. I'm now 32 and the magazine still delivers.
New Internationalist products are always of high quality. I love receiving them.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
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.
