Niall Ferguson presents this truly insightful 6-part documentary series filmed during the onset of the current economic crises, about the history of the globalised world of finance [= Ribanomic System] and how it came to dominate our  everyday lives.

Particularly interesting are the origins of Bonds, Insurance, the formation of the modern Company, and the Stock Market.

I would also draw attention to the failure of to learn the lessons from economic and world history as a major cause of various crises, and the importance of behavioral factors in the workings of the Market.

The first episode can be found here, enjoy all six.
