A documentary about the history of money by Professor Niall Ferguson.

There are two versions of The Ascent of Money, the original one, put out by Channel 4 in the UK and the US version put out by PBS. The PBS version has edited out much of the program for the US market. You may make your own judgements about what has been removed.
