Economy and Industry in . This is not a serious work on the economy of Ancient Rome - but simply lists very broad categories of work such as "Farming and Agriculture" and dedicates a single paragraphs to "Taxes", "Trade" and "Currency". Some nice pictures - no real content.

Ancient Rome had a strong economy with a variety of industries. There were three social classes in ancient Rome. The book explains many of the businesses of ancient Rome, including milling, baking, construction, mining, and metalwork. The patricians, or upper class, owned land, and their income came from rent and taxes. Much of their time was occupied with political and leisure activities. The working class, or plebeians, were farmers, craftsman, and merchants. As the Roman Empire spread, so did the Roman markets. Food and building materials were exchanged around the empire and the known world for silks, spices, and grain.
