Description
We are all aware of the power of money—how it influences our moods, compels us to take risks, and serves as the yardstick of success in societies around the world. Yet because we take the daily reality of money so completely for granted, we seldom question how and why it has come to play such a central role in our lives, notes Kabir Sehgal, a former vice president at J.P. Morgan. Sehgal takes the reader on a global quest to uncover a deeper understanding of the relationship between money and humankind, examining it through perspectives as varied as biology, psychology, anthropology, and theology. He explores the origin of exchange in the Galápagos Islands, searches for hoards of coins from an ancient civilization in Bangladesh, and learns about the art that appears on money from coin collectors in Vietnam. Sehgal takes us from the vaults beneath the Federal Reserve in New York City to a beehive where pollen can be understood as a natural form of exchange.
