About the Author
Praise For The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World…
" Before regulators throw block trades, bond swaps, bridge financing, butterfly spreads and Black-Scholes out with the bathwater, they should find time to read Niall Ferguson's The Ascent of Money."
-The Wall Street Journal
"[An] excellent, just in time guide to the history of finance and financial crisis."
-The Washington Post
" Shrewdly anticipates many aspects of the current financial crisis, which has toppled banks, precipitated gigantic government bailouts and upended global markets."
-Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
