Frederick Kaufman: The Money Plot


Mon Dec 07, 2020
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
60 mins

As the global pandemic reminds us of how fragile our economic infrastructure truly is, author Frederick Kaufman delves into the past 65,000 years to demystify the concept of money, and see through the fog of modern finance with his new book The Money Plot: A History of Currency's Power to Enchant, Control, and Manipulate.

A frequent media commentator, including on MSNBC, Bloomberg, CNN, and an address to the United Nations General Assembly, Kaufman tackles the complex history of money, beginning with the earliest myths and wrapping up with Wall Street's byzantine present-day doings.

Frederick Kaufman discusses his new book The Money Plot with journalist Kait Bolongaro.
