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 wealthΓΓé¼ΓÇ£while endangering the jobs, possessions, and futures of virtually everyone outside finance.ΓΓé¼┼ôΓΓ鼪virtually in a category of its own ΓΓé¼ΓÇ¥ 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. ΓΓ鼪Others have laid out the dire consequences of financialisation (ΓΓé¼┼ôthe conversion of everything into monetary formΓΓé¼┬¥, in DasΓΓé¼Γäós phrase), but few have done it with a wider or more entertaining range of referencesΓΓ鼪[Extreme Money] doesΓΓ鼪 reach an important, if worrying, conclusion: financialisation may be too deep-rooted to be torn out. As Das puts it ΓΓé¼ΓÇ¥ characteristically borrowing a line from a movie, Inception ΓΓé¼ΓÇ¥ ΓΓé¼┼ôthe hardest virus to kill is an ideaΓΓé¼┬¥.

Extreme Money named to the longlist for the 2011 FT and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year award.
the candor and objectivity of an impartial observer, and a wry sense of humor that reveals the folly in it all.ΓΓé¼┬¥
ΓΓé¼ΓÇ£Brooksley Born, Former Chairperson of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC)ΓΓé¼┼ôThis is the best book yet to come out of the financial crisis. Das is a graceful, witty writer, with an unusually broad range of reference. He is also a long-time master of the arcana of the netherworlds of finance and nicely balances historical sweep with illuminating detail. Extreme Money is lively, scathing, and wise. ΓΓé¼┬¥ΓΓé¼ΓÇ£Charles Morris, Author of The Two Trillion Dollar Meltdown: Easy Money, High Rollers, and the Great Credit Crash.ΓΓé¼┼ôLike Hunter S. ThompsonΓΓé¼Γäós Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Extreme Money launches you into a fascinating and disturbing alternative view of reality. But now greed predominates, the distorted world of finance is completely global, and the people making crazy decisions can ruin us all. This is an informative, entertaining, and deeply scary account of HadesΓΓé¼Γäós new realm. Read it while you can. ΓΓé¼┬¥ΓΓé¼ΓÇ£Simon Johnson, Ronald A. Kurtz Professor of Entrepreneurship at MIT Sloan School of Management and Author of 13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial MeltdownΓΓé¼┼ôYou know when Lewis Caroll, Max Weber, Alan Greenspan, and Sigmund Freud all appear on the same early page that you are about to read an intellectual tour de force. Das is an authoritative and colorful critic of modern markets, and here he weaves financial history and popular culture into an entertaining and blistering social critique of how so many people have come to chase endless financial reflections of the real economy. Extreme Money speaks truth to power. ΓΓé¼┬¥
