George Webber Evening: The Ascent (and Descent) of Money

Niall Ferguson

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 is Professor of History at Harvard University. A best-selling author, he also writes regularly for newspapers and magazines all over the world. He has written and presented three highly successful television documentary series, most recently, The Ascent of Money.
