Ultimately, however, Bruckner is undone by his inability to keep his feet on the ground, to talk in practical terms about money and how to deal with it.

Synopsis

Money is an evil that does good, and a good that does evil. It is wise to have money, says Pascal Bruckner, and wise to think and talk about it critically. One of the world’s great essayists guides us through the commentary that money has generated since ancient times, as he builds an unfashionable defense of the worldly wisdom of the bourgeoisie.
