A brief and inexpensive reader about money

Money Changes Everything explores central questions around the concept and institution of money: How does money affect our lives, our relationships, our happiness? What does inequality mean for our society? Does money corrupt our morals and values, and if so, how can we prevent this corruption? Readings by a range of economists, philosophers, reporters, artists, and ordinary citizens take up these questions and more. The Web site for the Spotlight Series offers comprehensive instructor support with sample syllabi and additional teaching resources.

The Bedford Spotlight Reader Series is an exciting new line of single-theme readers, each featuring Bedford’s trademark care and quality. The readers in the series collect carefully chosen readings sufficient for an entire writing course—about 30 selections—to allow instructors to provide carefully developed, high-quality instruction at an affordable price. Bedford Spotlight Readers are designed to help students make inquiries from multiple perspectives, opening up topics such as money, food, sustainability, and gender to critical analysis. The readers are flexibly arranged in thematic chapters, each focusing in depth on a different facet of the central topic. An Editorial Board of more than dozen compositionists at schools focusing on specific themes have assisted in the development of the series.
"This is an engaging topic for college students that will encourage them to think critically about themselves and the world in which they live."

—Sara Raley, McDaniel College
