Thought I'd receive around to reviewing this perfect six part series I watched in mid 2009. Nice thing I made some notes to jog my memory. If you've seen Michael Moore's perfect documentary "Capitalism: A love story", you may remember Moore asking an expert what a "derivative" was and being amused by that expert's inability to describe it. Well, in "The ascent of money", movie maker Niall Ferguson doesn't goal such straw men...if you wish an extremely detailed and forensic acc of the many reasons why the financial stores collapsed in 2008, Ferguson is your man.The series itself is an odd bod. The first episode didn't really keep any interest for me, which is why I'm not scoring this series a excellent 10/10. It's as if the nature of the series all of a sudden changed in the wake of the global financial crisis. After the first episode, the rest of the series hones in on the reasons for this crisis. However, there are many interesting historical stories which are either interesting for their own sake, or because they tie-in with what went wrong during the 2008-09 crisis.Some of the subject I found interesting in the series were: Episode 2:The role of the Jewish bankers the Rothschilds in defeating Napolean and the Confederates (in the American civil war). How the Nazis rewrote that history is also covered.Episode 3: How the Scot who owned 25% of the US caused the French revolution. Parallels between the Enron bubble (which explode late 2001) and the Mississippi bubble of 1719.Episode 4: The welfare state dismantled; rise of futures/derivatives/hedge-funds (the latter being crucial to the crisis of 2008-09).Episode 5: The property booms in English speaking countries; the minigame of Monopoly; the fall of the landed aristocracy in Britain; Detroit on the verge of communist revolution in 1932!; The "New deal" as a method to avert such revolutionary sentiments and to bring African Americans into the mainstream; the Subprime mortgage crisis in the US.Episode 6: How Britain was the world's biggest drug dealer! "Foolproof" financial trading (which was anything but); possible future conflicts between the U.S and rising superpower China.This is a magnificent series which covers all the problems of the global financial crisis...it's like a mini university course on finance and economic history. It has a lot of historical examples and the most complex modern aspects of economics and finance are dealt with in a lucid manner...you may wish to have a pen and notepad handy...there's plenty of meal for thought here.
Ferguson is good, very nice at times. I have read few of his ebooks and actually I just watched this 6 episode TV series, "The Ascent of Money". There has been nice and longer reviews in the NY Times and Guardian newspapers. Here are just some fast critical points:1. You receive the impression that all economic inventions (Smith, Law, Mattesson etc.) come from Scotland, which is at least somewhat of an exaggeration (Ferguson's home country)2. Ferguson gives much time to one economist, Milton Friedman, but without much critique. Maybe he could not have worked for Pinochet, but in the long run it was good, Ferguson concludes. Allende is presented as a terrible economist, a easy Marxist, nothing about US involvement in the coup. 3. There is no "too large to fail", no critique of the large banks, no critique of how banks control American politics through donations. George Soros receive criticized, as a representative of Hedge Funds, but that is it. 4. Ferguson is jumping back and forth without reaching convincing conclusions in every part. Ex. The jump from history of cash to insurance. 5. The presentation of the history of the welfare state is strange to tell the least, grabbing on to one example, the Japanese, without discussion or even mentioning the begin in Germany of the spread to Scandinavia. 6. You receive the impression Ferguson is too fond of the wealthy, ex. Ken Griffin. In interviews with them we are very far away from "Hard Talk". 7. It is "the store which has gone mad" not individuals, not manipulators, not terrible companies, with one exception, Enron. You receive the impression Ferguson only attacks those who already lay down, or who have fallen. 8. "Chimerica" as explained by Ferguson does not really explain anything, it at the most a catchy word. Indeed he goes far to destroy it himself at the end. It's a nice series overall, but there are at the same time too many troublesome interpretations, strange selections and too much help of globalization and American status quo for it to be truly insightful.
