ALIR - The Ascent of Money

This 2009 PBS series written and produced by Niall Ferguson examines the ascent of money, proposing that financial history is the essential back story behind all history. He documents the roots of money by examining conquests and warfare, the impact of natural disasters and the growth of the insurance industry, hedge funds, and the meteoric real estate market of the 20th century.
