            Why is a $5 note worth $5? Where do coins come from? What do banks actually do? All this and so much more is answered in A Quick History of Money, a crash course from cash cows to cryptocurrency. Money might sound all grown-up and serious, but the history of buying, selling, savi...ng, and stealing is full of crazy stories and unbelievable facts. A Quick History of Money is here to show you the silly side, as well as give you the lowdown on the important stuff like interest, stocks and shares, and wealth inequality. You will discover How the earliest societies got by without a penny in their pockets. Why gold gets all the glory. How the first banks started making money from money. Who invented the first banknotes and the concept of 'fiat' money. The craziest money-making cons of all time, from shaving coins to selling the Eiffel Tower... twice. How wealth is measured in the modern-day. History's most expensive money mistakes. What money might look like in the future. Great tips for slick saving and smart spending. Plus, read about the world's weirdest wonga, from the four-tonne stones used as currency on the island of Yap, to teacups and sea shells in ancient Asia, to beaver pelts in colonial Canada. Learn how hyperinflation leads to some mind-blowing money math, like the Bitcoins used to buy two pizzas in 2010 that would be worth over $90 million today. Test your knowhow with a quiz at the back of the book. Packed with facts and jokes, the latest in the Quick Histories series takes us on a chronological tour from cashless societies to... cashless societies, proving that while it might make the world go round, money sure is funny.

            In Money Matters for Teens, young writers discuss their financial fears and the strategies they've learned to help them spend their money wisely, save for the future, and pay for college. The gap between the richest and the poorest Americans has been growing for decades, and expe...rts predict it will continue to widen. Young people bear the brunt of this inequality because it makes it harder to get a job and to pay for the college education you need to move up the ladder. Political changes could help close the gap, but in the meantime, teens can help prepare themselves for financial independence. In this book, teens write about learning to handle money wisely, to manage their own income, to pay for college, and how our larger economic system determines their financial standing. Essays include: Equal Work, Unequal Pay The Rags to Riches Myth Job-Hopping to a Career I Took a Scam Job Job-Hunting Tips A Guide to Drama-Free Banking My Credit Card Gave Me False Security We Don't Save It for a Rainy Day How Am I Supposed to Pay for College? Countdown to Independence and more! Through these essays, teen readers--as well as their parents, teachers, and caregivers--will pick up new tricks to managing their money but will also be provided a much-needed glimpse into how the world looks to our younger generations.
