The money machine

I just finished reading "the money machine -- how the city works" by Philip Coggan. This book explains, in basic terms, the financial ideas used in the City of London. Since I have also been reading a lot of books on Silicon valley start ups. it was interesting to see that there was nothing on venture capital. At the end of the book I was slightly more convicted that some aspects of "the city" were useful. I don't really see myself as a stockbroker, but perhaps I could hack a bit of code for them.
