George Webber Evening: The Ascent (and Descent) of Money
We were delighted to welcome Niall Ferguson, one of those rare historians who is equally brilliant investigating the past, and analyzing the present. The author of the superb Ascent of Money and The House of Rothschild probes with his customary clarity and acuity the relationships between Jews and finance, and anti-Semitism and financial crises, topics especially pertinent now.
Niall Ferguson holds a dual professorship at Harvard. His articles are published worldwide and his books and documentary series critical successes. His latest book is High Financier: The Lives and Time of Siegmund Warburg.
