More Description

With the same fresh and fearless inquisitiveness that characterized her classic workplace history, All the Livelong Day, Barbara Garson takes on the marketplace of money. Her quest: to find out who wins and who loses in a world united by the free flow of capital. In a hilarious and instructive tour of the global economy Garson deposits her Viking book advance in a one-branch, small-town bank and in an aggressive mutual fund. From those points of departure, she tracks her money's every stop, talking to the people who touch, use, or are touched by it. Her conversations with Wall Street bankers, Chinese labor contractors and Texas oil company treasurers -- all of whom get a piece of her investment -- transform our understanding of money. Money Makes the World Go Around is a classic -- headed for the same shelf as the new economy works of Michael Moore and Michael Lewis.
