'Lorenzo Fioramonti has written an urgent and highly accessible book, showing just how over-reliant our governance systems are on misleading numbers, which support market power and blur our understanding of the world. And it is also a better and more compelling read than exactly 95.4% of all other important books!'
David Boyle, author of The Tyranny of Numbers
'This book is a thoughtful political economic analysis of how our fates have come to be determined by a few numbers, and how these numbers have been shaped by a few people. If we want a vibrant and responsive politics, we’ll need to know where it has been enclosed by the world's powerful accountants. Fioramonti’s book provides an excellent map.'
Raj Patel, author of The Value of Nothing: How to Reshape Market Society and Redefine Democrac
'Read How Numbers Rule the World and become an expert yourself.'
