Just Money: how society can break the power of finance

From Commonwealth publishing:
An e-book by the acclaimed economist Ann Pettifor, Just Money: How We Can Break the Despotic Power of Finance. In it she explores the role of credit in the economy and its relationship with the money supply. She goes on to set out a set of policies to bring the economy back under substantial democratic control. 
This is not, strictly speaking, a core tax justice issue. But we have recently been doing a lot of work on the political economy of financial centres - not least with our Finance Curse analysis. "Breaking the power of finance" is certainly something that interests us.

Available here (only, for the time being).

(Update April 2014: For more information on the Finance Curse see here)
