Pressestimmen '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) Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Nicholas Shaxson is the author of Treasure Islands: Tax Havens and the Men who Stole the World and Poisoned Wells: the Dirty Politics of African Oil.
