Description - The Almighty Dollar: Follow the Incredible Journey of a Single Dollar to See How the Global Economy Really Works by Dharshini David

"Original and engaging ... Economics can be fascinating and accessible. This book is proof" - Joel Hills, Business Editor, ITV News
"A brilliant book ... everyone should buy it because it's very, very readable" - Iain Dale, LBC

The dollar is the lifeblood of globalisation: China holds billions in reserve for good reason. Greenbacks, singles, bucks or dead presidents, call them what you will, $1.2 trillion worth are floating around right now - and half the dollars in circulation are actually outside of the USA.

But what is really happening as these billions of dollars go around the world every day? By following $1 from a shopping trip in suburban Texas, via China's Central Bank, Nigerian railroads, the oil fields of Iraq and beyond, The Almighty Dollar answers questions such as: why is China the world's biggest manufacturer - and the US its biggest customer? Is free trade really a good thing? Why would a nation build a bridge on the other side of the globe?

In lively and entertaining prose Dharshini David lays bare these complex interrelationships through the simple story of one dollar as it moves through the opaque international system. This is essential reading that gets to the heart of how our new globalised world really works.
