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.
Peter Stalker is a former co-editor of the New Internationalist who now works as a consultant to a number of UN agencies.

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.
For many years I have read the New Internationalist magazine with great respect. Many an article I have written, and film I have made, have had their roots in something I read in the NI.
The New Internationalist is one of the most profound magazines.
I do enjoy your magazine - it provides a good balance to a lot of the right-wing / conservative and pro-big-business-dominated media.
A little about Global Mamas: Global Mamas is a Fair Trade cooperative in Ghana, West Africa, supporting the sustainable development of women artisans producing fair trade products
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.
