Reviews

  • "He has done the impossible: writing a book on tax that is not the literary equivalent of a handful of sleeping pills... A brief but critically important book. It needs to be read by politicians and journalists as a matter of urgency"

    Marcus Chown, Times Higher Educational Supplement
  • "Richard Murphy is a rare voice of sanity at a time of economic madness. We desperately need an alternative to austerity - and with a few more Murphys, we'll get it."

    Owen Jones, author of The Establishment
  • "Conventional economists have run out of ideas. But Richard Murphy abounds with them. He writes with electric clarity about what went wrong and what could be done to put things right. He is a new economic thinker, and guided by a sharp and practical accountant's eye he knows where the money is hidden, who has it and how to release it. Murphy is is as courageous as he says our politicians should be."

    Polly Toynbee, The Guardian
