  • 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

  • Searing… Shaxson has form on being prescient ... his ideas should not be dismissed lightly

    Caroline Binham, Financial Times
