The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of The World by Niall Ferguson Epsd 1 5 Full Documentary

3428 ratings | 607373 views
Professor Niall Ferguson examines the origins of the pillars of the world's financial system, and how behind every great historical phenomenon -- empires and republics, wars and revolutions -- there lies a financial secret. Episode 1: Dreams of Avarice. From Shylock's pound of flesh to the loan sharks of Glasgow, from the 'promises to pay' on Babylonian clay tablets to the Medici banking system, Professor Ferguson explains the origins of credit and debt and why credit networks are indispensable to any civilization. Episode 2: Human Bondage. How did finance become the realm of the masters of the universe? Through the rise of the bond market in Renaissance Italy. With the advent of bonds, war finance was transformed and spread to north-west Europe and across the Atlantic. It was the bond market that made the Rothschilds the richest and most powerful family of the 19th century. And today governments are asking it to bail them out. Episode 3: Blowing Bubbles. Why do stock markets produce bubbles and busts? Professor Ferguson goes back to the origins of the joint stock company in Amsterdam and Paris. He draws telling parallels between the current stock market crash and the 18th-century Mississippi Bubble of Scottish financier John Law and the 2001 Enron bankruptcy. He shows why humans have a herd instinct when it comes to investment, and why no one can accurately predict when the bulls might stampede. Episode 4: Risky Business. Life is a risky business -- which is why people take out insurance. But faced with an unexpected disaster, the state has to step in. Professor Ferguson travels to post-Katrina New Orleans to ask why the free market can't provide adequate protection against catastrophe. His quest for an answer takes him to the origins of modern insurance in the early 19th century and to the birth of the welfare state in post-war Japan. Episode 5: Safe As Houses. It sounded so simple: give state-owned assets to the people. After all, what better foundation for a property-owning democracy than a campaign of privatisation encompassing housing? An economic theory says that markets can't function without mortgages, because it's only by borrowing against their assets that entrepreneurs can get their businesses off the ground. But what if mortgages are bundled together and sold off to the highest bidder? Episode 6: Chimerica. Since the 1990s, once risky markets in Asia, Latin America and eastern Europe have become better investments than the UK or US stock market. The explanation is the rise of 'Chimerica', the economic marriage of China and the United States. But does it make sense for poor Chinese savers to lend to rich American spenders? http://www.RebelMystic.com

Incredible the ignorance shown in this video in many aspects. As we see now , capitalism is failing , not because the stock market is doing great , means that people are doing great. Look at what is happening in France ,but the video says nothing about the inequality between the 1 % and the rest of the population and that inequality and the constant and cyclic bubles that burst creating chaos and poverty , are the generators of regime change on a massive scale.Chile in the 1970s suffered the intervention of the most powerful nation in the world that created economic havoc because socialism wasn't going to be allowed to spread in the Southamerican continent. Tango isn't CHilean !! for God sake !! but in this video a famous tango " Por una Cabeza" is played when Chile is being discussed. That's is like play Beethoven to discuss US history. .

There's maybe a hand full of noteworthy economic bubbles and crises prior to central banking becoming dominant in 1913. Do the math... The bigger the government, the lesser the freedom, an obvious correlation.

Great stuff. Too bad it skimped a bit over futures, options and hedgefunds. I sold my apartment this year and am very happy that I finally have capital to use or keep. Now the problem seems to be - what to do with it? If I keep it in fiat, it's losing money with time due to inflation and, because of the fractional reserve system worldwide, bank might withhold some of it in case of another recession. What other things are there except for crypto, gold and some commodities like uranium?

Niall Ferguson..."System of free labor". Call it what it is. Slavery. "Verged on genocide". There is nothing that the Spanish didn't do to the Inca that the Nazis did to the Jews. According to the 1948 UN resolution on genocide it clearly was genocide. Not to mention Spain stole trillions from Peru, Colombia, and Bolivia. Trillions.

Umm, not to be rude, but an updated codec would be appreciated, if possible. It's so blurry these days, especially on 4k panels, that it's really difficult to watch. It's so blurry and it would be a disservice to this videos longevity to let it fall to the wayside. If the OP or anyone reading this could could re-up the vid in a higher bitrate it would be greatly appreciated. If it's already been done, then I Would greatly appreciate a link. Cheers. Gave it alike, because I love this sort of content. It's really great to learn, even stuff I already know, because it just reinforces my memory and overall knowledge.

The dragon[a] stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. 2 The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority. 3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. 4 People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.[b]9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.10 “If anyone is to go into captivity,     into captivity they will go. If anyone is to be killed[c] with the sword,     with the sword they will be killed.”[d]This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.The Beast out of the Earth11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[e] That number is 666.

Zaphod Beeblebrox Feel free to hate the guy, but at least get the facts straight. He is by no means an Austrian. I haven't watched the whole thing yet, but in the book he pretty straightforwardly stated that the gold standard was a disaster that directly contributed to the Depression, and that the financial deregulation of the 80's was a mistake. Your case against him must be weak as hell if you need to lie about his positions to make you feel better.

After reading books on economics I no longer agree with what you said even though I used to. If you learn economics, and I would refer you to Milton Friedman's work and a really good book by... someone else called Lords of Finance you would get a different perspective about what money is wether its gold, silver, paper, or rocks.

+amer shakir A solution? For starters... Well, I think "Sapiens- a Brief History of Humankind" by Yuval Noah Harari should be required reading in all schools. Secondly, I think we have to abandon this attitude that grants carte blanche status to Hard Capitalists and the parasitic Elite. Left unchecked they will always resort to avarice, duplicity, destruction. manipulation and resulting misery that goes hand in hand with the unfettered pursuit of power and wealth. So regulation is a good thing in my opinion. I'm just wondering which angle they're grinding now that'll cause things to go pear-shaped. Sub-prime auto-loans are looking very familiar to a former sub-prime crisis... What I do know is that the public will be left holding the bag and paying for it too.
amer shakir (2 years ago)
+maskvp mGy I am not really hoping for a collapse/major correction. I just know it is inevitable. Will I survive a global economic meltdown? Only God knows. "We are staring at very similar inequities that gave rise to Anarchism, Communism and Conflict a century+ ago." How do you suggest these potential problems be solved? I think this is why it is so important that we don't sugar coat what is going on. It is better to tell people that neither Gov Policy or money printing is going to bring prosperity to the average american. Just tell people that they are not longer as valuable instead of telling them that "the rich" or Immigrants are their problems.

Manny Bruce (2 years ago)
The Federal Government creating FANNIE MAE to help people get housing loans is where the term " entitlement " programs originated from , because you had to be a white person to be entitled in getting a Government backed loan. At the time government assisted programs were not negatively stigmatized as a free government hand out , but instead viewed as giving Americans a helping hand to prosperity.. Now that people of color are now getting these government assisted programs , it's now a negative concept. People of color have been denied so much wealth in the USA and globally. This video confirms that working hard and dealing honestly does not acquire wealth nor builds powerful nations. Instead cheating , exploiting ,telling lies , bigotry , greed , selfishness , hatred , selfish pride , violence , are all ingredients to making wealth and power. Funny , all of these behaviors are inline with SATANIC concepts , but yet practiced by CHRISTIANS in order to create and operate Christian societies. Your entire existence have been to live from one sham to the next.

Yes.This situation is also where the term "REDLINING" came from -because it was written GOVERNMENT POLICY that non whites were to be excluded from certain zip codes-primarily the suburbs(these rules were actually typed in red in the housing codes).It was during this time that ITALIANS and IRISH people were designated as "officially white" so as to be eligible to live in designated "white" zip codes.

+Aurora 25 No, I just didn't understand what you were trying to say. Aside from you non-use of the conventions of written English, punctuation and spelling the sentence you began without a capitalization and ended without a period doesn't seem to hold the requisite single idea, even though there are incomplete clauses that suggest you meant to say something. All your exercises of your writing skills have left me with is questions: How is money the biggest evil? Why is the world "problem" there? Why do you think humanity wishes to "develop it self" into a global power? Global power is a term usually applied to nations and so it would seem that humanity as a whole is inherently already a global power? In other words, I tried to make sense of what you said and couldn't for lack of material to work with. Which of us has no brains? I would add to that, which of us is functionally illiterate?

+Aurora 25 Without money we wouldn't have the standard of living as we do now, Money have had a crucial place in our history, there would not have been markets which gave us technicians and other jobs cause we all had to be farmers. no industrial revolution advanced science ++ our current money system is from shit hole and have to be change, but until we have automated robots doing all the work world wide we still need money period. Monetary reform is the only way to end depressions and inequality world wide. It also would give more power back to people instead of massive corporations.. Watch money masters from youtube and you'' get it!

this was just depressing. Just 4 hours of financial disaster stories! How about some solutions, Professor?

The solutions are what the financial founders including the Medici, Rothschild et al knew and made them rich, otherwise for this current time you may need to french kiss lagarde.

they are not "Arabic numerals" they are from India and called "Hindu Numerals".... this is a fact... Arabic is written from left to right.... but Modern numbers or the "Hindu Numerals" are written from right to left.... i am surprised they are still being peddled as Arabic numerals...

dude from what I am aware of , the first civilization who used a number system was Babylonian.

Fact is, you just answered why they are Arabic Numerals. That doesn't mean that they weren't predated in South Asian society. But you are dealing with an English medium so you should expect that it will be a generally Eurocentric viewpoint. I imagine if I was reading something in Hindi I would see a lot of things that looked biased and inaccurate to me as well as it would be presented in an Indocentric viewpoint where they are probably called Hindu numerals, even though a lot of South Asian Muslims and Chinese probably have a differing perspective as well.
