This short book describes the role big banks played in the financial crisis of 2008 while denouncing the financial oligarchy's seizing of power and the dangers it represents for democracy today. There have been many books since the financial crisis that have considered historical events leading up to the crisis but few that consider a solution. Ten years after the great financial crash, this book synthesises the historical developments and introduces a proposal aimed at rebalancing the economy and society at large. The author presents a novel solution that would change current tax systems in the developed world, in their entirety.
This book will be of interest to students, practitioners and researchers, as well as the wider informed audience.

Promotes the need for critical thinking at undergraduate and graduate levels
Engages in a topical debate that continues to underpin the future stability of the economics discipline
