The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance: Hacking the Future of Money
blog has been on the down low over the last few months because I’ve
been writing a book. The book is now finished, 78 579 words aimed at
providing a gateway for an individual to gain access to the matrix of
global finance. It’s called The Heretic’s Guide To Global Finance:
Hacking the Future of Money.
It will be published in May 2013 by Pluto Press, a fantastic independent publisher based in Highgate, London, who have published such societal shitstirrers as Noam Chomsky, Edward Said, Vandana Shiva, Susan George, and John Holloway, amongst others.
I’ve often found that I’ll read an interesting book providing a
critique of the financial system, but then I’ll put it down and that’s
kind of the end of it. I store the info away somewhere and pull it out
during a conversation maybe, but I don’t really act on it. Thus, when
Pluto approached me to write a book on finance, I decided it would be
good to create something that stays with the reader after they put it
down, a manuscript that sets in motion certain heretical processes
within that individual, perhaps a self-reinforcing critical impulse that
culminates in them becoming a subversive financial ninja or sorts, or a
Shaolin fighting monk of finance, disrupting capital flows around the
world in the cause of social and ecological justice.
To do that, The Heretic’s Guide sets out a framework for approaching
the financial system based on anthropology, gonzo exploration, the
Hacker ethos, DIY culture, activist entrepreneurialism, drag queens,
rogue magicians, guerilla gardening, bats, dolphins, OpenSource culture,
network disruption, circuitbending, and you. In essence it’s about
jamming systems of power in the cause of democratic openness. Pretty
simple actually. It’s going into production now, and more publicity will
start to come out early next year.
In the mean time, I’m going to try recover. If you’ve ever wondered
what it’s like to write a book in six months, the picture below says it
all, ha ha. I’ve come some way since I started this blog, and now I need a week of sleep. Over and out.
