John Lanchester spoke about his book, How To Speak Money: What the Money People Say--And What It Really Means, at Politics & Prose on Friday October 10, 2014.
To those who don t speak it, the language of money can seem impenetrable and its ideas too complex to grasp. In How to Speak Money, John Lanchester author of the New York Times best-selling book on the financial crisis, I.O.U. bridges the gap between the money people and the rest of us. With characteristic wit and candor, Lanchester reveals how the world of finance really works: from the terms and conditions of your personal checking account to the evasions of bankers appearing in front of Congress. As Lanchester writes, we need to understand what the money people are talking about so that those who speak the language don t just write the rules for themselves.
