excellent education on economics

well explains why finance is not only moral, but the foundation of society. those who criticize capitalism and finance should get the info in this book into their heads. but that's probably their problem. that requires learning and self-improvement.

Back to basic.. a call to refresh our biased views

The authors brings the facts of finance to debunk some of the most common misconceptions about money and finance.
Most importantly, the authors challenges the established moral views about greed and the self-interest motivation of wealth.

Finance knowledge gap filled!

The reason I purchased this book was because I felt like I had a big gap in knowledge when it came to finance. I understood how businesses work, trade and sell goods. But finance I couldn't really make sense of, due to a lack of tangible goods being produced.

Having now listened to this book I would say I am now absolutely clear on the important and vital role of finance. For this reason I would definitely recommend this book.
