About this product
- DescriptionA counter-blast to the bashing of capitalism and a fresh and bold re-evaluation of the fundamentals that turn genius into hard currency. Harry Bingham used to be an ecomist and a banker and thought he understood money. Then, in autumn 2008, the world stood on the edge of calamity and Harry realised that all the things he knew had been proven utterly wrong. So, he decided to go back to first principles, to meet the people who make the money - the entrepreneurs and inventors, the salesmen and financiers. He wanted to find out how the world really worked and what drives the people who make it spin. For the first time he saw that while the ecomy might be about many things, it is never ever about money. We all have strong feelings about money. It is the magic of its alchemy that has catapulted the human race from extreme poverty to our world of ever-expanding riches, but it also brings with it ecomic chaos. But how many of us can say what is it made really made of and how it works? From billionaire entrepreneurs and Indian shift-workers to small-time manufacturers and conglomerate CEOs, The Root of All Good, is the story of the people who have created the world of extraordinary prosperity that we w live in, and the new system of capitalism they are shaping to recover our future.
- Author BiographyHarry Bingham is an ex-City trader who has worked for major British, American and Japanese firms but who now writes full time. He lives near Oxford with his wife and their three dogs.
