RE: The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of The World by Niall Ferguson
Yeah, it is pretty long being very in depth and thorough. I've been at it in bits and pieces all day with only the last hour to go.
I found it broken into separate episodes here http://video.pbs.org/program/ascent-of-money/

Professor Ferguson touches on many things I've always wondered about, early Jewish bankers, the Rothchilds, East India Co. and then makes the connections to how and why things are the way they are today.

Muffs, you'd prolly find his book in a public library I'm sure.

Tried to watch it but got this message......

"This video contains content from Channel 4, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds"

Will try other videos.... want to watch at least an hours worth tonight.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

Bandwidth limit? Can you eat that? Consider Tongue

No, but I know where I'd like to shove it... Dodgy

Thanks but no thanks, that would then mean I have read something.
I don't read.

It's okay, it's the 29th which means stupid shitty bandwidth reset. So gonna go get me some chips (crisps) and watch this shit, see if they can teach me something I don't already know.

cya around 7:15.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

I've got an hour through and I realise I have tuned out at the mention of bonds.

I am happy to have opted out of all this.

This. Is it worth spending so much time on it? Consider

I watched the series when it aired on the TV, didnt feel like Id wasted my time.
