Description

None of us has as much money as we would like, but imagine if money didn”t exist at all. How would we buy the things we need, or sell the things we don”t need? Who would decide whether a basket of fruit is worth the same as a hunting spear?


Many things have been used as money, from live animals through cowrie shells to plastic cards. Learn how money lending grew into today”s banking industry, and how credit allows us to spend money we don”t even have.


Series Information


What would your life be like if you had to do without all the modern inventions you take for granted? How would you cope without a toilet? Could you get by without electricity? If antibiotics had not been discovered, would you still be alive today?
Starting from these thought-provoking questions, each title in the fantastic You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without series takes us on a historical journey. We learn how people really did cope in the past, and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. And so to the future: What further changes can we expect to see in our own lifetimes? This science and technology strand within the internationally acclaimed You Wouldn't Want to Be series features fantastic full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles, making the books attractive even to reluctant readers.
