140 Years Of Monetary History In 10 Minutes

This week’s video is a flashback to Episode 2. We received many comments from you on the blog thanking Mike for explaining the Seven Stages Of Empire so clearly, but there was definitely one segment of the episode that was a clear favorite and had viewers asking ‘Why wasn’t I taught that in school!’

So for those of you who haven’t seen it — strap yourselves in for 140 years of Monetary History In Ten Minutes.

By the end of this clip you’ll be able to answer for yourselves:

– Are we overdue for a new monetary system?
– Is war good for an economy?
– Why did Nixon sever the link between all currencies and gold?
