Money for Beginners by Matthew Oldham
What better time than a financial crisis to start learning about how money works...
What is bitcoin? Are there any differences between stocks and shares? What are interest rates? What is a recession? Why are footballers paid more than gardeners? What is a central bank and what does it do?
Many people say it's not polite to talk about money. But if we don't talk about it, how will anyone understand how money works, what counts as fair pay, and why the rich are getting richer while the poor stay poor?
Packed with information in accessible bite size text and useful graphics and illustrations. Recommended for younger and older readers alike.
