This book provides a unique inside-out look at our financial system, based on the author's unusual personal adventure. It is not only a user-friendly guide to the complex maze of modern finance but also a manual for utilising and subverting it for social purposes in innovative ways. Smart and street-smart. -- Ha-Joon Chang, University of Cambridge, author of '23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism' This is an imaginative, even exuberant exploration of the daunting world of finance - it will unleash a generation of activists, and do a world of good. -- Bill McKibben, author of 'Deep Economy' Money is power, but so too is knowledge. Tinkering with regulation will not change the world, but empowered citizens just might. Brett Scott's entertaining and informative book is brimming with good ideas on how we can engage and change global finance on our own terms. -- Tony Greenham, Head of Finance and Business at the New Economics Foundation 'Scott re-humanizes and diversifies the image of finance and arouses his reader's curiosity. He has succeeded in writing a book about finance without being dull or alarmist, but fun and exciting. His irreverent and "colourful" writing style, and his "cool" references make this a "fresh" and dynamic book.' -- Marie-Adelaide Mathei, Research Analyst at UNRISD 'This is a book for "activists" and "campaigners"' -- Robert Deakin, rethezine.com
