David Wolman, “The End of Money”
Consult Hyperion, 16/04/2012
David Wolman is a contributing editor at Wired, and has also written for publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Discover, National Geographic Traveler, New Scientist and Outside. His latest book, The End of Money, the subject of this podcast, takes a critical look at cash, from Marco Polo’s fascination with the paper notes he saw circulating in China, to end of the gold standard. He explores a growing trend of people using cell phones as replacements for both bank branches and cash and delves into the parallel worlds of counterfeiting and anti-counterfeiting technology.
