Becoming Financially Fluent: The Ascent of Money with Niall Ferguson
Mon., April 27, 6:30 p.m. 2009; FREE
Talks & Readings
Historian Ferguson got famous when we invaded Iraq, for positing empire as brutal and imperfect but no less the necessary foundation of civilization. Tonight he delivers a lecture based around his long-view-taking The Ascent of Money (companion volume to his same-titled public TV series), which makes much the same point about money.
