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.

New Internationalist keeps me focussed on the realities of the wider world and helps to keep my rushed life in perspective.
The New Internationalist is exactly the sort of intelligent, committed and progressive publication which here at The Chaser, we strongly disapprove of.
I want to congratulate you on the fantastic job you do with New Internationalist Australia.
