Seeking Alpha – new book review

Posted by: Nick Shaxson in: Thoughts

Seeking Alpha is a top US-based finance site, and it has just given Treasure Islands a very nice review, appropriately highlighting the scale of what’s been going on in our globalised world. I think my take-away quotes might be:

“Nicholas Shaxson digs deeper than any previous research on the size and shape of global finance and the extent to which it is now beyond the reach of most national governments. . . . essential context for the likely next scenarios as 24-7 high-frequency trading in globalized financial markets outstrips the fixed geographies of nations and their governments.”

That’ll do nicely, thanks, – though there are a couple of others I might have chosen.
