The Almighty Dollar By Dharshini David AudioBook Summary
Have you ever wondered why we can afford to buy far more clothes than our grandparents ever could…but may be less likely to own a home in which to keep them all? Why your petrol bill can double in a matter of months, but it never falls as fast?
