One week before President Barack Obama's official swearing in ceremony, public media provider WNET.org puts the meaning of money into context by speaking with best-selling author, historian, economist, and Harvard professor Niall Ferguson about the current state of the American economy and our nation's financial future. According to Ferguson, understanding a nation's financial history is the essential component in understanding their evolution as a society. By learning how ancient societies endured periods of economic distress, claims Ferguson, modern financial analysts can perhaps find a solution to today's worldwide economic meltdown. Follow Ferguson around the world as he traverses financial hot spots in all corners of the globe to discus the emergency with leading experts on the economy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
