Summary
"Although financial markets often try to distance themselves from gambling, the two have far more in common than is usually thought. When there were no financial institutions such as banks, people disposed of expensive items and governments raised money quickly through lotteries. Gambling tables fulfilled the roles that venture capital and banking do today."-- Jacket
