About the Book



Learn the story of money and the central part it plays in all our lives. Meet the many men and women of history, explore the markets and find out how you can increase what's in your pocket.



Book Synopsis



Money makes the world go round, but how well do children understand finances? Show Me the Money breaks the mold of the school textbook and introduces young readers to the world of economics -- from the history of money to e-commerce.

Divided into sections that focus on economics, business, personal finance, and the history of trade, Show Me the Money takes technical jargon and breaks it down with easy-to-understand text, diagrams, and illustrations making a formerly dry subject interesting and relevant. Topical questions of ethics are addressed throughout, including free trade, fair trade, debt in the developing world, and the impact of business on the environment. The book also looks at personal finance from saving to pensions, and introduces key thinkers such as Adam Smith and John Maynard Keynes, to take a look at the bigger picture of the global economy.

Updated to be in tune with today's culture of environmental and social awareness, Show Me the Money is a good investment for young people who want to learn about economics and the world around them.



Review Quotes




"Hall's presentation of this sometimes dull topic is remarkably vibrant." - Library Journal

"We think the book, with its colorful cartoons and Lego-like illustrations of efficient people, isn't just a handy guide for tomorrow's little acquirers; its reminders could help a few adults, too." - Wall Street Journal
