Praise for The Finance Curse

“Nicholas  Shaxson wrote Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men who Stole the World (London: 2011), He is the author, with John Christensen, of The Finance Curse: How Oversized Financial Sectors Attack Democracy and Corrupt Economies. This is a wonderful piece of work which, inter alia, critiques in great detail the various claims made about the significance of the financial services sector to the British economy and examines the negative effects for the rest of us of having what is essentially an unregulated global casino in our midst. That this country is now set on a course of absolute decline is largely down to the City’s dominance of the economic conversation in the country since the 1970s (and the gullibility of the politicians who believed what they were told).”
