Niall Ferguson: The Ascent of Money (PBS)


Niall Ferguson is our guide on a tour of monetary history and financial crises in the recent PBS special, "The Ascent of Money"

Ferguson was a recent guest on Bloomberg Night Talk, where I first heard about this PBS program based on his recent book of the same title. 

Now that the program is up on (edit) Youtube and the PBS website (sharp video quality and additional content there), I'll be interested to see how Niall puts this latest global financial crisis into historical context.

Enjoy the video!

I just got done watching this special on PBS. What a very informative, and eye opening video. I hope more people will take the time and watch this. Thanks PBS for airing this video.
