TheDeathofMoney The Death of Money-How the electronic economy has destabilized the world’s markets and created financial chaos by Joel Kurtzman (ISBN: 0671687999) – The author, a business columnist for the “New York Times”, explores a world transformed by computers into an electronically integrated international market that is virtually unregulated – and so powerful that no government can defy its will. The book examines this new speed-of-light environment and shows how it works as well as whom it is working for – and against. It introduces people who control it, explains the technology that drives it and probes its revolutionary and potentially catastrophic effect on business.
