"Coined: The Rich Life Of Money And How Its History Has Shaped Us"

Mar 11, 2015

    

  We are all aware of the power of money - how it influences our moods, compels us to take risks, and serves as the yardstick of success. Yet, because we take the daily reality of money so completely for granted, we seldom question how and why it has come to play such a central role in our lives.

In Coined, author Kabir Sehgal casts aside our workaday assumptions about money and takes the reader on a global quest to understand the relationship between money and humankind.

Coined is not only a discussion of the concept of money, but it is also an endlessly fascinating take on the nature of humanity and the inner workings of the mind.

Kabir Sehgal is a Vice President in emerging market equities at JPMorgan in New York. He serves as an officer in the United States Navy Reserve, served as a speechwriter on John Kerry's presidential campaign, and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
