An excellent explanation of money within the context of the UK - essential reading to understand the current economic situation
on 10 August 2015
I read this book having read "The Grip of Death: A Study of Modern Money, Debt Slavery and Destructive Economics " and being shocked by my ignorance about what money is, despite studying Applied Economics to degree level, then studying a masters degree in Islamic Banking and Finance, teaching macro-economics briefly and having a quasi-economic role in my first job. This book is a clear explanation of the UK monetary system. It also made me feel better about my ignorance as it covered the traditional manner that money is taught (and I was) which bears no relation to the modern reality. I would heartily recommend this book to everyone as the issue it covers are pretty fundamental regarding the economic issue we face.
