The Price of Time is highly readable. The timing and telling of this economic horror story make it gripping and persuasive. — Emma Duncan ― The Times


Is it possible to write a highly engaging history of the world going back to Hammurabi, unfolding along the way a bitingly comprehensive explanation for its problems today, all told through a single character? Apparently yes. Edward Chancellor has done it, an achievement all the more notable since his drama is built around a character so unheroic on its surface: his “price of time” is interest rates. This is a timely, vitally important and hugely readable book.– Ruchir Sharma ― Chairman, Rockefeller International and New York Times bestselling author



Edward Chancellor has produced not just a brilliant explainer of the value of money and time but a hugely engaging history of the greatest problem confronting markets today. The Price of Time is a must read – a copy should be on the desk of everyone who has anything to do with financial markets or wondered why things work as they do. — Merryn Somerset Webb ― Editor-in-Chief, MoneyWeek
