Ascent of Money

(January 19, 2009)   Public broadcaster WNET is putting the meaning of money into context – where it came from, where it goes, and why it has always been (and always will be) the fulcrum of civilization. THE ASCENT OF MONEY, a two-hour documentary, premiered last week on WXXI. The film is written and presented by bestselling author, economist, historian, and Harvard professor Niall Ferguson.  You can watch it online.
