Not a lot has changed in the world of money since, the 1960s musical Cabaret with Liza Minnelli whether it be good old cash, credit cards or even cryptocurrency now, the saying is still true ‘Money makes the world go round’. The world of finance has often been a bit mysterious but it affects all of us whether we like it or not and this superb hardback book entitled Financing The World provides a history of the development of international fi nance and focuses on the events and entrepreneurs that shaped the world of finance we know today. It describes the period of initial industrialisation and the regular stock market crashes that accompanied it with tales of financial skulduggery, innovation and the people behind it all. Alongside this colouful history is an equally colourful world of collecting the superbly printed bonds and share certifi cates that were issued to fi nance some of the greatest projects affecting our lives today: the building of the railways, mining, financing the American Civil War and the rebuilding of Germany after the Second World War.
