How did the gold standard for American money develop? Why do we use coins and paper money? How does this money system of ours work? Questions like these are answered in this comprehensive history of money and the American experience. Arthur Morey is an apt narrator, carrying the listener through decades of politics, scandal, folklore, and intrigue. He delivers the history lesson in a well-paced and lively teacher's voice. Many anecdotes about historical characters and events involved in the evolution of money make this an interesting account of what could have been a dry undertaking. This is a good blend of chronicle and factually based history. D.L.M. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
