Extreme Money: Masters of the Universe and the Cult of Risk [Kindle Edition] - was $29.99

Satyajit Das (Author)

Publication Date: August 4, 2011

79 Reviews [☆☆☆☆]

The human race created money and finance: then, our inventions recreated us. In Extreme Money, best-selling author and global finance expert Satyajit Das tells how this happened and what it means. Das reveals the spectacular, dangerous money games that are generating increasingly massive bubbles of fake growth, prosperity, and wealth--while endangering the jobs, possessions, and futures of virtually everyone outside finance.

"...virtually in a category of its own — part history, part book of financial quotations, part cautionary tale, part textbook. It contains some of the clearest charts about risk transfer you will find anywhere. ...Others have laid out the dire consequences of financialisation ("the conversion of everything into monetary form", in Das’s phrase), but few have done it with a wider or more entertaining range of references...[Extreme Money] does... reach an important, if worrying, conclusion: financialisation may be too deep-rooted to be torn out. As Das puts it — characteristically borrowing a line from a movie, Inception — "the hardest virus to kill is an idea".
-Andrew Hill "Eclectic Guide to the Excesses of the Crisis" Financial Times (August 17, 2011)

Extreme Money named to the longlist for the 2011 FT and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year award.

For this one, I've got it when it was free on February 14, 2012. Still unread...

Jon Markman of MSN posted the following column with Satyajit Das in September 2007.

Are we headed for an Epic bear market?

It tells you about the destruction that was going to happen to financial markets around the world. It also highlights Das's credentials, including the fact that he wrote a 4,200+ page reference work on trading derivatives.

A man worth becoming familiar with. And we get the Kindle version for free.

These Kindle book "deals" need a master thread... that way we don't have 1,000 postings over 1,000 titles.

Same here. Forgot about it.....

Any way Thanks Archena for this find.

We have the same tired conversation each time... Just as before, there are many more in favor of individual threads than those against
