Der Aufstieg des Geldes die Währung der Geschichte by Niall Ferguson( visu )
1 edition published in 2011 in Undetermined and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Die vierteilige Reihe ist eine fesselnde Dokumentation über die Entstehung und Entwicklung des internationalen Finanzwesens. Niall Ferguson, Harvard-Professor und Bestseller-Autor geht der anhaltenden Finanzkrise auf den Grund: angefangen bei der US-Immobilienkrise, der Globalisierung und den gegenseitigen Abhängigkeiten der Wirtschaftssysteme bis hin zu verschiedenen Anlageformen an den Börsen und dem Rückbau des Sozialstaates. Bei all diesen Problemen liefert die Geschichte der Finanzmärkte einen wichtigen Schlüssel zum Verständnis - und vielleicht zum Weg aus der Krise? Dabei beleuchtet die Doku-Serie historische und aktuelle Ereignisse der Weltwirtschaft gleichermassen: denn nur wenn man auch die Geschichte des Finanzmarktes kennt, kann man die aktuelle Krise vollständig verstehen. Ferguson reist an die wichtigsten Schauplätze der Wirtschaft und zeigt, dass diese Geschichte spannend wie ein guter Thriller ist. (Quelle: www.headfilm.ch)
