This booklet deals a arguable and available exploration of the problems of our monetary capitalism and its justifications. With an leading edge emphasis at the economically 'undisclosed' and the political 'mystifying', it combines technical knowing of finance, cultural research, and al political account of pursuits and
institutions.
