** The History of Money by by Martin Jenkins & Satoshi Kitamura

The History of Money: From Bartering to Banking is a charming illustrated book that explains basic money concepts of replacing bartering with money, why lending money is like time travel, and why banks matter. It’s pitched to children but one would wish that all adults be that well informed, including (ahem) our beloved politicians.
