“With its explosive combination of philosophy, economics, and Lacanian psychoanalysis, Bjerg’s book provides an absolutely indispensable guide through the labyrinth of economics. It makes us fully aware of thecrazy world we live in. It is a kind of theoretical equivalent of a science fiction filmin which we discover that aliens are already among us and are controlling us.”
“Ole Bjerg provides us with a brilliant philosophical examination of this phenomenon that we call ‘money’ … This book should be onthe reading list of all economists, bankers, civil servants, politicians and, most importantly, of all citizens if we are to stand any chance of overcoming the deep dysfunctions of themoney and banking system that were drama-tically revealed by their near collapse in 2008.”
—Tony Greenham, Head of Finance and Business at New Economics Foundation and co-author of Where Does Money Come From?
