“Erudite, spectacular, and revealing, the Atlas of Finance sheds a bright light on the history and geography of finance—its contribution to unleashing human potential but also its darker side. A tremendous accomplishment!”—Gabriel Zucman, professor at the Paris School of Economics and University of California, Berkeley
“The Atlas of Finance gives readers a real, intrinsic view of how, where, and when financial markets do their work. It follows the history of money from cuneiform tablets to Bitcoins, showing how the essence of finance is in the networks that it both creates and destroys; and each page bursts with stunning and illuminating illustrations. Everyone from students to seasoned professionals to armchair experts learn something from this unique and fun book.”—Robert J. Shiller, author of Narrative Economics.
