Description


"The New Yorker" has been at the forefront of social commentary since it was first published in 1925. Even when the markets have been down, its famous single-panel cartoons have found a way to add humor to the economic landscape.
In "On the Money," fans can revel in over 350 of "The New Yorker"'s best cartoons on the theme of money, culled from the past 80+ years. From bossy businessmen to crooked creditors to slighted stockholders, no one in the financial world has escaped humorously critical jabs from the master of cartoon humor. The collection is edited by "The New Yorker"'s cartoon editor, Robert Mankoff, and includes an introduction by the best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell.
