Sgouros throws back a curtain, and shows how the banks work. He does this with almost impossible clarity. The things he describe are complicated, and he doesn’t oversimplify them, but he does make them intelligible. This is like the best college course you ever had. Also, it doesn’t advance any particular political claims about banks; it’s only political aim seems to be to give citizens the knowledge we need to make informed choices (for ourselves and our families, but also for our communities and nation). It produces this odd result: The book ought to be peeking out of the coat pocket of anyone who ever showed up at an “Occupy” rally, but it ought to be in every cubicle on Wall Street. For me, anyway, this book is among the most important I’ve ever read.
(Also, the writing is not just clear, it’s elegant and witty and a pleasure to read.)
I highly recomment this book.
