Review: Money: The True Story of a Made-Up Thing

Money: The True Story of a Made-Up Thing by Jacob Goldstein

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I know a lot about money and its history and I still learned a bunch in this book. Jacob Goldstein, who also narrates, uses his podcast-acquired skills to make the stories he uses to illustrate the history of money very accessible. It felt like I was listening to a podcast series with a bunch of episodes (each chapter) that were fascinating and illuminated a lot about the history of money. I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand money and what’s been happening in the world economy over the last few decades.
