|aIn this six-part series, historian Niall Ferguson tells the story of money and the rise of global finance, and how behind every great historical phenomenon - empires and republics, wars and revolutions - there lies a financial secret. Bringing context and understanding to the current economic crisis, he reveals how the history of finance has been punctuated by gut-wrenching crashes. Each episode shows how a big bang in the ascent of money has changed the course of history.
