"Radical thinkers might have a point"
Financial Times, about The Greatest Crash
"One of the things we need now is new thinking on the fundamentals... Most readers will learn a good deal from his provocative insights."
Emeritus Prof. David Myddelton

The roadblock in finance

The Greatest Crash explains why the financial system that evolved from the early Italian bankers can expand no further. It covers the broad failings of global finance.

Then it examines the contradictions, wishful thinking and paradoxes that give rise to so much financial trouble.

To escape this system limit, evolution is needed, but the obsession with regulation and conformity act to prevent evolution.

IThe Financial System Limit, the author challenges the existing academic and political consensus about how economies should be managed, showing that finance is the root cause of public dissatisfaction with the elite and their policies. Serious problems of both inequality and populism have their origin in monetary and economic policy. Estimates show that one-fifth of all economic output is spent on interest: this is too high an overhead and cannot be allowed to increase.

There are separate e-book and print editions of each title.
