The Money Machine : How the City Works
What happens in the City affects almost every aspect of our lives. In this excellent guide, now completely revised and updated for this fourth edition, a leading financial journalist cuts through the myths and scandals that make the news to explain the nuts and bolts of the financial system. How are the big deals made? What radical changes will the Euro bring about? Which are the institutions that really matter? What causes the pound to rise or interest rates to fall? Philip Coggan provides clear and concise answers to many such questions; he also shows why they are of central concern to all of us.
