    ***LONGLISTED FOR THE FT MCKINSEY BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR 2021***

     

    ”Impeccably researched and sumptuous in its detail… It”s a page-turner” —TheEconomist

     


    ”This book tells the story brilliantly… Well-paced and cleverly organised. It also draws some devastating conclusions” —The Sunday Times

     

    Gripping… The account raises questions over whether ‘impact investing’ and ‘stakeholder capitalism’ are less about poverty alleviation for the world than guilt alleviation for the Davos elite ― Guardian

     

    For an astonishing story of how the global economy can be manipulated, read the devastating account in The Key Man ― David Ignatius, Washington Post

     

    A riveting account of the intertwining of brilliance and greed… Should be a mandatory read at all schools of journalism and business schools. It’s a rare tour de force from which both can learn ― Business Standard, India

     

    An unbelievable true tale of greed, corruption and manipulation among the world’s financial elite and how the World Bank, Bill Gates and the governments of the US, UK, France, and many more fell victim to the world’s largest private equity Ponzi scheme ― Harry Markopolos, the Bernie Madoff whistleblower

It is 300 pages of reading pleasure mixed with serious discomfort at what is being presented ― Ludovic Phalippou, professor of Financial Economics at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford

    A highly readable reminder of how greed and gullibility so often go together, and why we need good investigative journalism to keep reminding us that if the pitch (and the person doing the pitch) look just too good to be true there is probably something fishy going on behind the scenes ― Professor Sir David Omand, former director of GCHQ and author of How Spies Think
