About This Item

Allen Lane, Camberwell, 2008. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition. A second-hand copy which has rubbing of the corners of the paperback finding and a couple of pages accidentally creased. No annotations no underlining. (It is actually a used copy that has been read!) Illustrated with black-and-white photographs and reproductions of artworks in the text, and a number of colour plates. The author reveals financial history as the essential back story behind all history. He explains why the origins of the French Revolution lie in a stock-market bubble caused by a convicted Scots murderer. He shows how financial failure turned Argentina from the world's 6th richest country into an inflation ridden basketcase – and how a financial revolution is propelling the world's most populous country from poverty to power. – Yet the most important lesson of financial history is that sooner or later every bubble bursts. – Paraphrasing the rear panel blurb Full number line. Size: Trade Paperback. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1. Category: Business, Finance & Marketing; Economics. ISBN: 1846141923. ISBN/EAN: 9781846141928.
