The Ascent of Money

This isn't a financial blog (not yet, at least) but I do have a certain fascination with the financial markets and their history. In addition, I'm a fan of public broadcasting so PBS lining up a huge show about the history of money isn't something I'm likely to miss out on. Plus you can watch all of it online.

Clear out your next two hours or so and watch it. For someone like me, fairly untrained in finance or finance history but very interested, it's quite a trip.
