We all spend a lot of our time thinking about money; how to get it, how to spend it. But its nature eludes most of us. We do not ask what money is, and so we organise our lives around a mystery.

In Just Money the acclaimed economist and critic of modern finance Ann Pettifor explains authoritatively and clearly what money is, where it comes from, and how it is currently controlled. She goes on to describe how we the people can use an improved understanding of money and finance to build economies that are more productive and just than the bank-ridden rackets we are currently lumbered with.


"This book presents a clear and accessible account of where our financial system has gone wrong and the subsequent cost to society. It should be read by everyone who hopes for a better and juster world." - Amazon Review
