Money makes the world go ‘round. Maybe you have it, maybe you don’t – either way its grasp is as inescapable as is its power to determine our lives, thoughts and actions.
Inspired by Aristophanes’ Plutus, the first political satire from ancient Athens; Ben Johnson’s The Staple of News on the emerging ethics of capitalism; and Time for Outrage, the inspirational text by nonagenarian writer/diplomat Stéphane Hessel which became the manifesto for the Occupy movement, Price of Money is a blistering attack on capitalism and greed.
“a scathing satire of economic inequality and shameless excess”
