Booklist - 10/01/2015 World money is more than dollars, pesos, or yen. Instead, this entry in the How Money Works series takes a broader look at the global economy. It begins with bartering systems, the development of money, and early international trade routes. Accompanied by cartoon illustrations, color photographs, and charts, the accessible text continues with topics related to international banking and markets, such as currency exchange, imports and exports, trade balance, bill of exchange, and gold reserves. The authors add a human element by discussing ways to eliminate world poverty and Third-World debt and increase fair trade and aid during global disasters. A thought-provoking conclusion encourages students to consider ways to de-emphasize money and wealth and create more equity and well-being around the world. Additional discussion questions provide great debate starters. - Copyright 2015 Booklist.
