Item description for El oro: Historia de una obsesion (Biografia E Historia Series) (Spanish Edition) by Peter L. Bernstein...

The role of gold in shaping human history is the striking feature of this tumultuous tale that discusses the magical, religious, and artistic qualities of gold and progresses to the invention of coinage, the transformation of gold into money, and the gold standard. Far more than a tale of romantic myths, daring explorations, and the history of money and power struggles, this tale speaks of the true significance of this element, the timeless passions it evokes, and its revelations about humanity.

Reviews - What do customers think about El oro: Historia de una obsesion (Biografia E Historia Series) (Spanish Edition)?

Para conocer el valor del dinero  Nov 29, 2007
Aunque de pequeña extensión y en ocasiones poco ameno este libro es rico en historias de la historia. Presenta un rápido pero completo recorrido desde la antiguedad hasta mas o menos el momento en que fue escrito, haciendo enfásis en los momentos importantes para el oro.

Nos ayuda a entender el valor del oro y como la pérdida del patrón de oro ha dado paso para la devaluación de las monedas, sobre todo del dolar. Estos momentos históricos de la época actual resultan de lo mas interesante.

Hay que leerlo con cuidado, al menos un par de veces. A pesar de sus lugares comunes es muy ilustrativo.
