  • 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.

  • 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
