Description

Following the bank bailout and the Global Financial Crisis, anger towards the financial system reached new heights. Yet the practical workings of the system remain opaque to many people, this practical guide to the financial sector will bridge the gap between protest slogans and practical proposals for reform. Activist and former derivatives broker Brett Scott proposes a framework for understanding financial institutions, based on the three principles of 'Exploring', 'Jamming' and 'Building'. By following this process, users will gain complete understanding of the machinations of the financial sector, learning how best to effectively disrupt the system and, finally, how to build new, democratic financial systems.
