*Jason Hickel, author of Less Is More*

Your head has been deliberately filled with falsehoods and confusion about money.

Filled with dazzling insight and admirable clarity, this is a book you'll soon be recommending far and wide

*Nicholas Shaxson, author of Treasure Islands*

Quietly radical and unexpectedly beautiful, this is so much more than a book about money.

*Sarah Jaffe, author of Work Won't Love You Back*

Arise all data donors from your slumber - and read this book. You - we - have been sucked into the "tech-finance vortex" that is the new, dangerous alliance of Big Finance and Big Tech. Addicted to our apps, we are trapped in a dizzying whirlpool of surveillance, allowing the FinTech vortex to exercise power over, and profit from, every transaction undertaken. Scott, steeped in the sector, guides us through it, and helps readers understand what is happening. He invites us to revolt and jam the Big Fusion. His book is an urgent must-read

A groundbreaking book
*Morning Star*
