Product description

Product Description

Harvard professor Niall Ferguson explores the world of finance from the 14th century to the present day. Amongst many other subjects, this six-part Channel 4 documentary looks at stock market crashes, runs on banks and sub-prime loans - terms which are never far from the headlines in today's fragile economic world.

Synopsis

In this six-part documentary respected author, journalist and lecturer Professor Niall Ferguson examines the dynamic role of money as he takes you on an epic tour of the financial world. A professor in History and Business Administration at Harvard University, as well as an author of numerous books and a commentator on contemporary politics and economics, Ferguson explains how finance rose to play such a terrifyingly dominant role in all our lives. This beautifully-shot documentary covers a broad spectrum of economic history from the 14th Century right up to the present day. But are you in on the secret? Do you really understand what causes a bank run, an inflationary meltdown or a stock market crash? Can you tell a sub-prime from a prime loan? Only with this historical perspective can one understand the essential truth about finance.
