Reviews

"Utterly convincing... The Finance Curse is a radical and important manifesto for improving Britain" -- Oliver Bullough, author of MONEYLAND
"This is a splendid polemic against modern finance, in general, and the City of London, in particular. It is hard-hitting, well written and informative. Instead of enabling productive investment, the predominant activity of contemporary finance is rent extraction. This comes in many different guises: modern finance does not only promote tax avoidance and evasion, but, argues Shaxson, enables gangsterism and corruption on an enormous scale. I fear he is right." -- Martin Wolf * Financial Times *
"This superbly written book shows definitively how global finance has been grossly mis-sold to us all. It's a must-read for anyone who lives, works and spends in this country" -- MISHA GLENNY, author of McMafia
"Gripping . . . a superbly written overview" * Times Literary Supplement *
"Searing... Shaxson has form on being prescient ... his ideas should not be dismissed lightly" -- Caroline Binham * Financial Times *
