Money and Banking

Dublin Core


This book is designed to help you internalize the basics of money and banking. There is a little math,
some graphs, and some sophisticated vocabulary, but nothing terribly difficult, if you put your brain
to it. The text’s most important goal is to get you to think for yourselves. To fulfill that goal, each
section begins with one or more questions, called Learning Objectives, and ends with Key Takeaways
that provide short answers to the questions and smartly summarize the section in a few bullet points.
Most sections also contain a sidebar called Stop and Think. Rather than ask you to simply repeat
information given in the chapter discussion, the Stop and Think sidebars require that you apply what
you (should have) learned in the chapter to a novel situation. You won’t get them all correct, but that
isn’t the point. The point is to stretch your brain. Where appropriate, the book also drills you on
specific skills, like calculating bond prices. Key terms and chapter-level objectives also help you to
navigate and master the subject matter. The book is deliberately short and right to the point. If you
hunger for more, read one or more of the books listed in the Suggested Reading section at the end of
each chapter. Keep in mind, however, that the goal is to internalize, not to memorize. Allow this book
to inform your view of the world and you will be the better for it, and so will your loved ones.
