  1. Riku Sayuj

    Imperialism The Darwinian JustificationFerguson contends that today s financial world is the result of four millennia of economic evolution It is very important to the aims of this book that this metaphor is accepted Ferguson looks at this evolution of money into the complicated financial ecosystem of today He explores how money mutated into new tools organisms and acquired characteristics that allowed it to meet the needs of its users demands of its environment better The tools that helped men [...]

    Yay for empire Another book from the vaguely centrist right, you know them, those economists and Greek translators and philosophers from the University of Chicago who assisted Pinochet in his fascist coup, won Nobel Prizes, misconstrued Plato to fit their world view I m looking at you, Leo Strauss , and finally, today, when they are primarily involved in teaching a new generation to do the same things.Well, Ferguson perhaps isn t so vehemently rabid about his political beliefs, and he doesn t te [...]

    The book is titled The Ascent of Money, but it s not about the ascent of money It s about the path of money, with the assumption that from the origin of the book s historical perspective, money has been the bedrock of civilization There s no ascendancy, because there is nothing for it to compete with, in the author s telling What the book really is is a straight history of the above board financial markets, and to that extent it s a useful and largely enjoyable read, covering the move from barte [...]

    This is a very informative, and convincing book, about the history, and the need for money I say that despite the fact that I disagree with the author s conviction that capitalism is one of humanity s greatest achievements, and that the price of progress is than worth it, no matter who loses out Also despite the fact that I have heard that the author is quite an arrogant individual But this book is a thorough and comprehensive account of the various milestones that have taken place in the histo [...]

    Ferguson is known as an economic historian yet his last few books were almost purely historical, with only brief passages on the economic aspects of historical events Here, Ferguson returns to telling about, well, not so much economics as the evolution of finance First money, then banks, then bonds, then equities, derivatives, insurance, and finally the causes of the recent credit crunch are explained and developed in simple and clear prose Unlike War of the World a mammoth retelling of the horr [...]

  6. Trevor

    Life has a habit of proving me wrong Recently I wrote a review of The Drunkard s Walk How Randomness Rules Our Lives and said something like you generally get a better understanding of a subject if you can see the historical path that has been followed in building the subject in the first place This book is all historical path, but it has left me without a clearer understanding of what I had hoped to learn from it.And this is a pity, as there are many things about money I would like a deeper und [...]

  7. Jan Rice

    Contemplating the title of this book, my first thought was that it was by a person of the political left, maybe not the Pope, but an anti capitalist and moralizer on the all around evil of the financial system No, said the person who recommended it to me He s center right So, then I saw the title as deriving from the bad boy mentality of the author, thumbing his nose at such views The author has his own intended reference to The Ascent of Man, a TV series by Jacob Bronowski that impacted him in [...]

    The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.Cicero 55 BCSo what have we learned in 2 Millennia Evidently nothing Ferguson argued that financial markets are like the mirror of mankind, revealing the works of how we function in the w [...]

  9. Stephen

    4.0 stars I am a big fan of Niall Ferguson and this book certainly added to my appreciation for both his skill as a writer and his knowledge of history, especially financial history After spending the early portion of the book on the history and development of currency, this book becomes a brief look at the origins and development of the major financial institutions banks, commodity exchanges, hedge funds, insurance companies and categories of assets bonds, stocks, real property, options and der [...]

  10. George

    The Ascent of Money by Niall Ferguson explores the development of financial systems primarily European systems from about the year 1400 onward and the United States system since the Civil War There is major focus on the US economy in the late 20th and early 21st Centuries This book is just OK not bad but not that good either Rating 3 out of 5 stars Notes Audiobook Narrated by Simon Prebble Length 11 hours and 27 minutes Unabridged Audiobook Release Date 2008 12 12 Publisher Tantor Audio

  11. Juan-Pablo

    I expected this book to give a good insight as opposed to a comprehensive history due to its length on how the monetary and financial systems developed throughout history It is instead a series of historical anecdotes thematically combined on each chapter Some of them are really informative the ascent of the Rothschilds , others are downright superficial and inaccurate The political and economic doctrines of the author are obvious in the reading of the book, as pointed out by other reviews There [...]

  12. Tao

    This is a very readable and enjoyable financial history for a layman like me Like most of the members of the general public, generally I have no interest in financial history, considering it complicated, mundane, boring and dry However, the recently financial meltdown piqued my interest on this topic This book described the development of modern finance and banking system, staring from Renaissance Italy, the Medici family, the rising of the Rothschild family after the Waterloo, all the way down [...]

    I was listening to this audiobook on a CD player, and my husband said, Is a man with a plummy English accent explaining the plot of Mary Poppins to you Yes You may not remember the part where the little boy wants tuppence to feed the pigeons and inadvertently triggers a bank run Harvard history professor explains the origins of not only coins, paper money, and electronic money, but also stocks, bonds, and insurance Bonds and insurance are way important than I had realized Very helpful for a non [...]

    The Ascent of Money had a subtle right wing conservative bent to the point that as the events became recent, I found and questionable facts and right wing talking points For example, as a follower of Paul Krugman s economics blog, I know at least one thing Ferguson says about him is a lie that has been perpetuated by certain Republicans And his analysis of the recent 2007 mortgage housing crisis is factually incorrect although is a common version reported by conservative news outlets.The prob [...]

    I came by this book via finding the PBS 4 part series up on pbs, which I have recently discovered as a goldmine of missed NOVA and Nature shows, free to watch online I watched the TV shows first, and picked up the book from the library to see if it would add depthdeo.pbs video 2246958992if you want to check them out.I am quite weak on financial history, so this book made an excellent beginning remedial course I don t think one should stop here, however But I did find Ferguson s account of the ev [...]

    Most people or at least me I know this guy as a purveyor of some outrageous opinions Keynes was wrong, because he was gay, or something and partisan talking points, and his questionable approach to fact checking was recently highlighted by Jonathan Chait at New York magazine Still, with one exception an arch criticism of the excesses of the welfare state, and their putative role in the stagflation of the 70s , this is a surprisingly balanced, entertaining and illuminating history of the developm [...]

  17. Roger Cottrell

    I was recently referred to this book by friend Roz, who didn t know that I d already read it For those who don t know Ferguson he s a prolific but right wing historian who is a regular face on British TV s channel 4 with series like EMPIRE, AMERICAN COLLOSUS and THE THIRD WORLD WAR I don t agree with Ferguson s project, particularly his defence of Thatcher, but his histories pose important questions even though they lack a central Marxist focus on class Ergo, attempts by many Left wing critics t [...]

    Money does not make the world go round, but it does make staggering quantities of people, goods and services go around the world.Money.Money Money.The Ascent of Money A Financial History of the World by Harvard professor Niall Ferguson, examines long history of money, credit, and banking Since this book is all about history don t think it s dry and unreadable it very readable, interesting and with substance The most interesting thing about this book which I felt is the blend of William Shakespea [...]

    Following Empire of Wealth I decided to try and grow my knowledge a little bit on the subject of finance Having greatly enjoyed Niall Fergesun s previous work, I thought this would be a great way to go And, in essence, it was.However, what this book doesn t tell you is that it s written for someone with a much higher understanding of global finance than I currently posess I m a financial and economic newbie, having only read Empire of Wealth and little else to increase my understanding of the su [...]

  20. Sean Wilson

    There are definitely some interesting moments in The Ascent of Money and Niall Ferguson has done some outstanding research, but these moments are pushed to the side so Ferguson can remind the reader of his own personal philosophy on the history of finance It is an almost organic, evolutionary process that is inherent in man, and financial concepts such as debt, the bond market and the stock market are, in his own words, mirrors of the human psyche While the concept is interesting, the idea then [...]

  21. Andrew

    The is a very interesting take on the role of money in world history Ferguson tracks the evolution of the financial world right up to the present economic crisis He writes very well and weaves in how other historic events were triggered or enabled by changes in how money works Even if one challenges some of the opinions in the book, it is very thought provoking Given everything that is going on around us these days, this is an excellent read Highly recommended.

  22. Aries Eroles

    Review shall be posted really soon.This is exactly a kind of book wherein 1 you have to read books 2 you must read books 3 there is a need to read books,because of its highly annotated and referenced texts The endnotes is actually 35 pages long citing numerous books, working papers, journals, news articles, etc.

    Ferguson made a topic I find interesting extremely dull Read Michael Lewis or John Lanchester if you want to find someone capable of explaining complex financial machinery properly.
