As the world continues to struggle to find its footing amid rising unemployment, constricted credit, and crumbling banks and industries — raising questions about how the economic system collapsed — PBS presents Niall Ferguson’s ASCENT OF MONEY.
This ground-breaking six-part series examines the creation of the economic system by taking viewers on a global trek through the history of money. Watch Part 3 of the video and answer the following questions by writing a minimum of 500 words using APA style format.
The next unit of the course is all about Risk and Return. There are several examples of concepts covered in the course, including this one, mentioned in Part 3 of Ascent of Money. Identify at least three, using the content of the video, and explain their role in the development of the stock market.
