Available to Order - shipping times vary
A series of hacked emails reveals how Hell's Top Banker and His Boss continue the plan they began with the Global Financial Crisis in 2007/08 to destroy the Global Economy. The demonic pair discuss how Monetary Experimentation and QE, over-hasty Financial Regulation, Austerity Government Spending policies, and broken Politics assisted their infernal plot. The next stage will be to further weaken the global economy through protectionism and populism, while crushing confidence in global fiat money through Modern Monetary Theory, distractions like crypto-currencies, and mankind's general financial stupidity. It explains why stock and bond markets are at record levels, yet the economy feels more unstable and uncertain. It becomes clear why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer while government's have taken their eye off solutions, including the rising environmental crisis. As a plan, its brilliant... and its working The pair even know how to solve it - but that would be telling. Bill Blain's short novel is a tongue-in-cheek Polemic - laying the blame for the ongoing market and economic crisis on bankers, regulators, central bankers and politicians, but mostly ourselves.
