Editorial Reviews

It is said that money makes the world go round. But when it comes to cash, gold, diamonds or even bits of digital data, without the engines that power the world’s financial systems, the money machine would grind to a halt. National Geographic Channel and host Jake Ward of Popular Science magazine take you inside the vaults of some of the world’s largest and most secretive cash stashes. For more than 80 years, armored vehicles have navigated Manhattan’s narrow streets carrying millions and sometimes billions in gold deposits in and out of the central bank of the United States ... the Federal Reserve Bank. Manhattan’s branch, one of 12 that make up the Federal Reserve System, is trusted to guard almost one-quarter of the world’s entire gold supply.
Just down the road, gold is given new life in New York’s Diamond District. On roughly two city blocks, $24 billion in cash changes hands every year. Go behind the bargaining counters to see how everybody from low-end street sellers to high-end brokers deals in the precious metal. And whether it is handing out new bills or replacing old, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing prints, mints, protects and regulates America’s print cash flow.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This product is expected to play back in DVD Video "play only" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

I was very glad to see that a new (2012) video had been released on this topic, as I teach high school and college economics. The film covers a range of money topics, including footage of the design and printing of paper money, coinage, gold topics, the Federal Reserve and counterfeiting. It shows the "Super Bill" counterfeit from North Korea and how it inspired redesign of U.S. currency. The video also includes information on virtual money such as BitCoin. A well-done informative video.
