'This book should be read by all those who want to see effective measures taken to counter the negative effects of globalization in general and the instability of international financial markets in particular.'
Erkki Tuomioja, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Finland
'Addresses two of the most powerful ideas being debated at the dawn of the 21st century - democratizing governance and the Tobin Tax. The book's value lies in making the conceptual, political and practical linkages between these two ideas to show that the most serious obstacles to their implementation lies in the lack of political will of some of the world's most powerful countries and institutions.'
Kamal Malhotra, Focus on the Global South
'I recommend this book to anyone interested in an articulate, alternative, radical perspective on key challenges facing the globalization project today. It will be equally useful for the general reader as well as specialists in money, finance and the political economy of globalization.'
Stephen Gill, York University, Canada
'An extraordinary portrait of finance capital, its irrational behaviour, and its negative consequences for people's wellbeing and the stability of democratic states.'
Atilio A. Boron, Latin American Council of Social Sciences
