Ever wondered why the gap between rich and poor nations is so great, or why it's so difficult to get a foot on the property ladder, or where the banks went wrong? This book offers the hidden story behind these and other forces that shape our day-to-day lives, often without our knowing it.

'Lively and witty . . . After reading this book a trip to the supermarket is an entirely different experience' The Times
